The system is scheduled to be introduced from November 1.
Health Ministry specialist Kaspars Bērziņš said that rapid antigen tests in medical establishments are important to ensure that Covid-19 spread does not take place inside.
Bērziņš said the system would be simple - people who would like to enter a medical facility would have to undergo a rapid antigen test at the door. More than a million tests a month would be needed to supply family doctors, outpatient-care doctors and dentists.
An additional €5.26 million is needed in November to allow the new system to be introduced. The system is scheduled to last until the end of the emergency on January 11. Therefore, a further EUR 7.13 million will be needed between 1 December and 11 January 2022.
