BISHKEK, March 2 (Xinhua) -- Kyrgyzstan has joined a digital platform to facilitate the cross-border movement of citizens within the Eurasian Economic Union, the country's Health Ministry reported on Tuesday.

At the moment, two accredited state labs of Kyrgyzstan are connected to the COVID-19 Free Travel platform in test mode - one in Bishkek, the other in Osh.

To obtain a PCR test result for COVID-19, the user must download the application COVID-19 Free Travel, which shows the user the nearest lab where they can be tested for coronavirus.

The test result will appear in the application in the form of a QR code, the report said.

Currently, preparatory work is underway to connect more labs to the platform.

The special mobile application has been developed to facilitate the free travel of citizens in the five-member union.

So far, Belarus, Armenia and Russia are connected to the information system.
