The Lithuanian government is currently discussing an alternative method of coronavirus testing that could be applied in large companies, Prime Minister Ingrida Simonyte said on Tuesday.
Her comment came a day after the Cabinet approved 30 million euros to help lockdown-hit small and medium-sized businesses test their employees for COVID-19.
“In recent weeks, we’ve been discussing some other testing methods that would allow large-scale pool testing in large organizations and (…) perhaps we could offer other solutions to large companies to test their employees on a regular basis,” Simonyte told LRT Radio.
“We’re now going to try this method in schools,” she added.
Pooled testing allows testing of several people using only one test. If a pool of samples tests positive, all individuals in the pool are retested. The prime minister noted that some counties are already using the method.
