According to the Republican Commission for Prevention of the Further Spread of COVID-19, four labs for implementing COVID diagnostic test functioning in Dushanbe carried out more than 15,600 PRC-based tests last month alone.


Two virology labs opened in the Khatlon provinces last month – in the cities of Bokhtar and Kulob. The Bokhtar-based lab reportedly serves 14 districts and cities in the province and it carries out 150-200 PRC-based tests daily.


Prime Minister Qohir Rasoulzoda ordered to open the labs for implementing COVID diagnostic test in all large cities and districts of the country as soon as possible, according to the Health Ministry press center.
