What is abroad?

In a number of countries, mass testing is practiced.

is that enough?
In Ukraine, testing for coronavirus is carried out primarily:
people who have symptoms of SARS or have pneumonia; returning from countries where the epidemiological level is elevated; those who live in the same house with the patient COVID-19; healthcare providers (in particular, those who come into contact with patients with COVID-19 or the bodies of those who died from this disease).
Who does PCR tests in Ukraine / Infographics 24 channels
As the chief state sanitary doctor Viktor Lyashko said in an interview with LB.ua, the testing situation in Ukraine is normal:
We all shout that we are not testing much. We test a lot, we test everyone who needs to be tested.
At the same time, as the epidemiologist, Honored Doctor of Ukraine Lyudmila Mukharskaya noted in the commentary on the 24th channel website, for today we still cannot see the real picture of the incidence in the country. Although the number of people being tested is growing, and this is a good sign.
So far, the expert does not see the need to conduct tests for everyone, as they do, for example, in South Korea. If only because in Ukraine they are not enough for this.
But the list would be worth expanding. In particular, people who, due to professional activities, are forced to have a lot of contact with other people (sellers, border guards, etc.) and those who have returned from abroad. Representatives of the above categories may not have a high fever and cough, but be asymptomatic carriers.

The low number of tests performed in certain regions, according to the doctor, is primarily due to the fact that the regulatory framework has not yet been fully determined – who exactly needs to be tested:
In areas where such low rates are likely to be tested only by those who have severe COVID-19 symptoms, pneumonia or living with those who are already sick.
In addition, not all laboratories in the regions are powerful enough to process a significant number of PCR tests per day. In the region with the largest number of cases, the necessary equipment is already being imported, but this is not the only point here – doctors also need to be trained to do this. Although this testing is not new for Ukraine, it was carried out earlier to detect other infections.

It is worth mentioning that in WHO one of the points of easing quarantine restrictions is precisely the ability to detect and isolate new cases of COVID-19 and, in general, to keep the spread of the virus under control.
As of April 30, 10406 cases of COVID-19 were recorded in Ukraine (540 new cases per day). 261 people died, 1,238 recovered.
