|Eligibility for free rapid test kits expanded to people from low- and lower-middle-income households and elementary school students to protect their health; 1.8 million people eligible for five free r||77||F.A.S.||2022-11-14|
On November 11, the Central Epidemic Command Center (CECC) announced that, to protect the health of disadvantaged individuals and elementary school students, it will expand the government's free rapid test distribution program to include people from low- and lower-middle-income families as well as elementary school students. It is estimated that around 1.8 million people will be eligible for five free rapid tests under this expanded program.
The CECC pointed out that at-home rapid test kits distributed under this expanded program are additional tests for eligible recipients; thus, test kits claimed under this program will not be counted as the test kit quota for an individual under the name-based rapid test distribution system. That is, people from low- and lower-middle-income families as well as elementary school students who have purchased rapid tests under the name-based system will still be eligible for free rapid tests.
