A number of kits were delivered to the Pasteur Institute of Iran and also to the Pediatric Infectious Diseases Research Center at Shahid Beheshti University of Medical Sciences for research on the safety of sensitive populations and to evaluate the quality of domestically produced kits to investigate the prevalence of COVID-19 among children.
