More than 15,000 have already tested quickly. Four out of 100 will have had contact with the virus

Mass testing continues, at this stage using rapid tests, with 15,139 people having already been tested for possible contact with the new coronavirus. According to the results, 590 are reactive cases.


Thus, and taking into account the percentage of reactive cases, it is estimated that four out of every 100 people screened have had contact with the Sars-Cov-2 virus (covid-19), said the Secretary of State for Public Health.

Franco Mufinda, who was speaking at the usual daily pandemic data update conference in the country, said that 80 percent of those tested expressed resistance to the virus through their immune system.

The mass rapid testing campaign started on the 6th of this month, covering citizens from Cuanza Norte and Luanda, including deputies, employees of the National Assembly and the Palace of Justice.

According to Angop, the provinces of Huíla, Lunda Norte, Bengo, Uíge, Benguela and Cabinda were also tested - in a total of 4800 people - with 129 reactive cases.

Remember that the result of the rapid tests is not definitive, requiring confirmation. Contact with the virus is tested. If the citizen was reactive, an RT-PCR molecular biology exam will follow which will provide the final diagnosis.

The mass rapid testing campaign aims to assess the degree of citizens' immunity and to track potential positive cases of covid-19 in communities.
