WHO-approved coronavirus test kit paves way for Vietnam's export of other home-grown test kits

(VOVWORLD) - Vietnam has become one of a few countries in the world that have produced WHO-approved coronavirus test kits. 

The kit has also been certified by the UK for circulation in Europe.

Former Deputy Director of the Vietnam Military Medical University Nguyen Quang Bach said international recognization will make it easier for Vietnam to ship the product abroad and create an excellent oportunity for the export of other made-in-Vietnam test kits.

“While some US states have halted the use of COVID-19 test kits due to technical problems, Vietnamese products have been highly appreciated. It demonstrates Vietnam is able to export test kits not only for COVID-19 but also for other diseases.”
