Almost half a dozen countries received more than 500,000 tests for determining coronavirus infection from Russian authorities, RIA Novosti reports. Anna Popova, head of Rospotrebnadzor, promised that this work would continue in the future.

In less than six months, test systems from Russia arrived in African and European countries, states included in the SCO and the CIS. The tests were also delivered to Latin American and Asian countries.

Moscow received about 30 requests for help in countering the spread of coronavirus infection from African countries. During the pandemic, Russia was requested to assist in the fight against COVID-19 by twenty-nine African states and the African Union. Almost 30,000 units of laboratory materials and more than 8,000 personal protective equipment were sent to the Democratic Republic of the Congo.

Medical multi-purpose modules and components for the creation of two medical complexes were transferred to Djibouti. The authorities of South Africa and Guinea received a set of test systems for research. During the pandemic, Russia sent humanitarian aid to the Union of Comoros and Madagascar.

Earlier, Moscow sent a batch of humanitarian aid to Cambodia. Russian test systems were handed over to the Iranian authorities, countries belonging to the Eurasian Economic Union and the CIS.
