Poorer countries to get 120 million $5 coronavirus tests

World Health Organization has announced that 120 million rapid diagnostic tests for coronavirus will be made available to low- and middle-income countries at maximum price of $5 per unit.

WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said the manufacturers Abbott and SD Biosensor had agreed with the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation to make 120 million of these new, highly portable and easy-to-use rapid COVID-19 diagnostic tests.

He told a news conference in Geneva the tests were currently priced at a maximum of $5 each but were expected to become cheaper.
