Malta could undergo nationwide rapid testing

 - COVID-19 - Nov 13 SHARE ON:

The Health Department stated that it does not rule out nationwide rapid testing for COVID-19 and that it is currently investigating the results of the same mechanism in Slovakia.

Slovakia was the first country to test its entire population of 5.6 million people with rapid antigen tests, with approximately one percent of subjects testing positive ahead of its second round of testing. 

Adopting this system for Malta would mean that health workers would be able to identify carriers better, making them more able to further mitigate the spread of the virus.
