MOSCOW (Reuters) – Moscow will begin free mass testing of citizens for the coronavirus from May 15, Moscow Mayor Sergei Sobyanin said on his website on Thursday, with a target of 100,000 people a day by the end of the month.

Around 70,000 blood analysis tests will be offered every few days, in the initial roll-out, Sobyanin said.
