COVID-19 tests at government facilities will no longer be free as the government has approved a health ministry proposal to impose fees on the tests.

The fees will be Tk 500 in case of home sample collections, the ministry said in the statement.

The decision will be effective soon, the notice, signed by Dr Nargis Begum, deputy secretary of Health Services Division, said.
