    Sept 28 (Reuters) - Some 120 million rapid diagnostic tests for COVID-19 will be made available to low- and middle-income countries over a period of six months and will be priced at a maximum of $5 per unit, the World Health Organization said on Monday.

    The tests provide reliable results in just 15 minutes, the WHO's Director General, Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, told a news conference in Geneva. (Reporting by Kate Kelland; Editing by Andrew Heavens)
