The presidential Blue House originally announced on Tuesday that 51,000 COVID-19 test kits were sent as emergency exports to the Middle East country. A total of 17 countries have made official requests for South Korean test kits
A Blue House spokesperson explained that a coronavirus diagnosis kit pack consists of two types of kits, a sampling kit and a test kit. The spokesperson said sampling kits were exported to the UAE.
The Korea Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has adopted a real-time polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test for quick and accurate screening. The method amplifies a specific DNA sample, requires a small number of samples, and yields results in six hours.
However, it normally takes about a day to receive the test results as health officials screen some 100,000 a day.
