The information was provided by the Czech government after its session on February 24, 2021. Minister Jan Blatný (for ANO) stated that there are 12 distributors and that the tests can be used for self-testing in schools or companies. The Ministry of Health will also prepare an amendment to the laws regulating the creation of prevention funds for health insurance companies in order to ensure sufficient financial resources for the contribution to companies.
