Through a project presented to the Deliberative Council from the “Vamos Juntos” block, they requested the ANMAT and the Ministry of Health of the Nation to provide the “Immediate” approval of self-test for the detection of Covid-19 with the aim of decompressing the first level testing centers in the face of the increase in cases.
In this regard, the councilor and president of the block Agustín Neme, who considered “It is very important that the coronavirus self-tests are released to decompress the first-level testing centers”.
“It is a tool that is already used in several countries in a safe and effective way, such as the United Kingdom, Germany, Spain, Austria, Belgium, Italy, France, among others, and which will undoubtedly allow the testing centers to be decompressed and avoid that a person has to stand in long lines and wait for hours to swab, “he argued.
“For this reason, it is imperative that the Ministry of Health of the nation and ANMAT maximize efforts to immediately implement the Covid-19 self-tests. Not only would it allow the testing centers to be decompressed, but it also allows a person to be tested without leaving their home in case of being a suspect and speed up the diagnosis, “Neme added, adding that” no more time can be wasted in this regard, hopefully this decision will soon be made and we will have a new tool such as self-tests for the benefit of the population ”.
