Today, April 15, within the framework of cooperation with the Dnipropetrovsk regional headquarters for combat coronavirus, the Rinat Akhmetov Foundation together with Metinvest Group transferred 15 thousand tests to the medical institutions of Kryvyi Rih to detect COVID-19.
– Rinat Akhmetov allocated 300 million UAH to fight COVID-19. By the personal decision of the Founder, the Rinat Akhmetov Foundation, in coordination with the Ministry of Health, is making its contribution to the victory over the coronavirus epidemic. We purchased and handed over 300,000 COVID rapid tests to the Ministry of Health in the shortest possible time. Rapid testing of symptomatic patients and subsequent separation stops the rapid spread of infection. The tests were transferred to the Ministry of Health and distributed among the regions of Ukraine. We have already passed tens thousands of tests to Kharkiv, Zaporizhzhia, Donetsk, Lugansk, Ivano-Frankivsk and Lviv regions. Dnepropetrovsk region received 30,000 tests this week. And today half of this aid – 15,000 – has been transferred to Kryvyi Rih, said Natalya Yemchenko, member of the Supervisory Board of the Rinat Akhmetov Foundation.
