While mainstream media propagandists are drawing up plans how to cast the Russian help to Italy in the negative light, Moscow made another important step in combating the COVID-19 pandemic.
Russian specialists have developed a new test allowing to not only quickly identify COVID-19 carriers, but also to identify people who are immune to the disease, Anna Popova, the head of the Federal Service for Surveillance on Consumer Rights Protection and Human Wellbeing told RIA Novosti.
“We will be able to identify both among the population and among the medical staff of people who already have immunity and who can work more freely with patients,” she said.
The new test is developed by the State Research Center of Virology and Biotechnology – VECTOR and will enter service next week. The test will allow to indentify people with the acquired and genetic immunity to COVID-19.
On March 16, Deputy Prime Minister Tatyana Golikova said that three test systems for the new coronavirus had already been created in Russia and the fourth was being developed. Two tests were developed by VECTOR, one more by the Ministry of Health.
