Health Sectors urge to limit Rapid Antigen Tests amid shortage of test kits

There is a shortage of test kits used for rapid antigen tests conducted to identify Covid-19, revealed the Health Sectors. This has led the health sector to limit the conduction of rapid antigen tests only for those considered essential.

The situation has arisen in the circumstance that the stock of test kits provided the suppliers to the Health Ministry is running out.

Speaking to a briefing in Colombo today (09), Deputy Director General of Health Services Specialist Dr. Hemantha Herath noted that the supply of test kits has not been suspended completely. The stocks received from the suppliers are limited and as a result the stocks received by the Ministry in millions have been reduced to 50,000, he revealed.
