"We can't check everybody today. We don't have that kind of technical capability so far, we don't have that kind of test strip capability, even though [...] we have a month's supply of test strips. We are buying them up," said the head of the region during a live broadcast on Instagram dedicated to business support issues.
Ivan Belozertsev said that at that time in Penza region tests were conducted only for those people "who are ill and have symptoms of coronavirus infection".
According to the governor, six laboratories in the region are engaged in such tests.
