Kosovo Minister of Health: We will destroy coronavirus tests from Serbia
They will not be used because they expired
Kosovo's Minister of Health Arben Vitija stated today that 1,000 tests that Serbia gave to Kosovo have been stored and that they will soon be destroyed.
When asked by the Democratic Party of Kosovo MP Bekim Haxhiu what happened to the 1,000 Covid tests that Serbia gave to Kosovo during the first government of Albin Kurti, Vitija said that those tests were stored, that they were never used and that they would be destroyed soon, reports the Pristina-based portal Reporteri.
"As far as the tests you're asking about, based on data from the National Institute of Public Health, they are stored like most other laboratory materials. They were never used due to expiration date. They will be treated like all materials that have expired microbiology according to the procedures of the department for microbiology," said Vitija, as reported by Tanjug.
Bearing in mind that these are small quantities, he pointed out that no special procedures are needed in order to dispose of the tests together with other laboratory waste.
