Clergymen of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church delivered high-precision PCR-based tests for diagnosing coronavirus infection in human body (DialPlexQ™ 2019-nCoV) to medical workers in all regions of Ukraine. The test kits had been purchased in South Korea by Mr. Vadym Novynskyi’s International Charitable Foundation in Honour of the Protection of the Holy Virgin, the Foundation reports on its Facebook page.

In the regions of Nikolayev, Kherson, Donetsk, Dnepropetrovsk, Zaporozhye and Kharkov, hierarchs also provided local hospitals with additional personal protective equipment for medical professionals. Earlier, the Foundation had sent thousands of hazmat suits and respirators to these regions.

The Kherson region was the first one to receive the PCR-based test kits. Delivered there were 40 systems for 4000 tests, 1060 goggles and 550 medical face masks.
