Mainichi front-paged remarks made at the Diet on Thursday by Health Minister Kato. He reportedly indicated that next week his ministry will put PCR coronavirus diagnostic test kits on a list of medical supplies covered by public health insurance, allowing clinic doctors to administer such tests more quickly as they will no longer need to first consult local health centers. The move comes amid rising public criticism about the unavailability of such tests for many people.
