TEHRAN (Iran News) – Iranian President Hassan Rouhani issued an order to boost the production of homegrown test kits for the diagnosis of COVID-19 in order to pave the way for the export of the medical device.
In a telephone conversation on Friday, President Rouhani ordered Vice President for Science and Technology Sorena Sattari to employ the whole domestic capacities and offer full support for the scientific and research centers to increase the production of coronavirus diagnostic test kits.
The president underlined that the homegrown production should satisfy the domestic demands and allow for the export of the test kits to the countries applying to purchase the product.
Last month, Rouhani highlighted Iran’s success in dealing with the novel coronavirus outbreak, saying the Islamic Republic has begun to export the health supplies necessary for the fight against COVID-19 after meeting the domestic demand.
