1st World vs 3rd World virus testing

The Editor,
I was speaking to my brother, who lives in Zimbabwe, (Africa) about (COVID-19) testing and costs in that “third world” country.
If you want a test for COVID-19, taken by Lancet Laboratories, which tests all over Africa,
there are  two options:
The nasal test swab yields a result in 12-14 hours and costs USD $65. A blood test gets a result in one hour and costs USD $15.
Compare this with the Manitoba system and the time it takes for a result!
