With masks, keeping proper distances and without any particular problems of overcrowding the antigen rapid tests are taking place in Nicosia.
Philenews went to the two points assigned by the Health Ministry in the district of Nicosia and watched the procedure.
By 10.30 a.m. 250 rapid tests had been carried out in Pallouriotissa and around 70 at Eleftheria Square.
The method used for the rapid tests is very similar to the method of the molecular tests (PRC tests). However the rapid test seem not to be as credible.
The citizens who take the test can either wait for 20-25 minutes to get the results or receive an SMS message on their phone.
