China’s National Health Care Security Administration has asked public hospitals to further reduce the cost of nucleic acid testing under COVID-19.

As of Friday, hospitals in 30 provincial-level regions have lowered prices from 60 yuan per person for a single test to 40 yuan or less, according to the administration.

The price for testing a group of 10 individuals should not exceed 10 yuan per person, said the administration.

As of Saturday, Beijing residents will pay 35 yuan for a single nucleic acid test and 8 yuan for a group test.
