Patients with "usual" pneumonia in the occupied territory of Donetsk oblast will be tested for COVID-19 on the 7th day using EIA testing. This is reported by the fake "DNR Ministry of Health".

"Patients with pneumonia, who undergo outpatient treatment at primary health care facilities, as well as in other cases of suspected COVID-19, will be taken blood samplings for EIA diagnostics in order to timely make a diagnosis and take anti-epidemic measures", - the report says.

It is specified that blood sampling from the above category will be carried out no earlier than 7 days from the onset of clinical implications, mainly at home, in compliance with the necessary biological safety measures, free of charge.
