Towards the end of June and the beginning of July, the procedures are expected to be completed in order to place the special machines on 20 islands in order to carry out a laboratory test for the coronavirus.
According to information from ethnos.gr, the officials of the Ministry of Health have not yet reached the decision on which health units and on which islands the 20 systems will be placed, in which the tourists will be checked, who will probably show suspicious symptoms and the local population.
After all, the fear of the Authorities from the first moment was when the foreign tourists will arrive in our country and will share in the islands of the Aegean and the Ionian how they will be checked whether they have been infected or not by the virus.
That is why the solution of buying new systems for PCR examination was chosen, which shows a possible active coronavirus infection . After all, transporting samples to large cities would be a time-consuming process that would make it difficult to manage possible cases .
So far, as the same sources of ethnos.gr point out , Paros and probably Mykonos are sure to acquire the new system for the tests due to the expected large wave of visitors, while so far the experts have not yet reached other Health Units.
At the same time, the process for the purchase of systems for the tests, as well as the negotiation of prices, will begin soon , while machines will be selected that can be transported to the islands relatively easily.
