A new random Covid-19 testing program on the streets of Kigali was announced by the Rwanda Biomedical Centre (RBC) effective Thursday, July 2.

The street testing surveys were launched in the City of Kigali and at its entry points.

RBC said that it is continuing to analyze the status of the Covid-19 pandemic in Kigali and it is in this context that a new assessment program was developed starting on Thursday, on some of the selected roads in the City.

"This is a 5-minute drive through, where car occupants are not required to vacate their vehicles," reads a related RBC notice to the public.

As noted, this operation will provide factual information about the Covid-19 status in Kigali and "will lead to tactical response activities."

"A request is made to all Kigali residents to cooperate with RBC teams for the sake of successful completion of this important activity," reads a statement released from the Center.
