Iran to export coronavirus test kits
Iran has issued its first permit for the export of serologic test kits used to diagnose patients affected with the new coronavirus disease, the country's vice president for science and technology Sourena Sattari said during a video-conference meeting with President Hassan Rouhani.
"Many products, which are currently being produced [in Iran] for [diagnosis and treatment of] coronavirus could not be made before," Sattari said.
"We reached a final decision with [the Iranian] Minister of Health this week to issue the permit for the export of serologic test kits for the diagnosis of coronavirus and the first batch of these kits will be exported later in the week," PressTV cited him as saying.
The Iranian vice president also emphasized that the country has become needless of importing most medical products related to coronavirus.
