According to the information obtained by Kibris Postasi, PCR tests, which have been suspended throughout the country, will resume following an announcement by the Ministry of Health. The numbers testing centres will be increased to avoid overcrowding.

According to the information obtained, the private sector will also be included in the screening programme.
