Ministry of Health spokeswoman Or Vandine said rapid antigen test kits have been helpful in slowing the Covid virus' spread. But she suggested that people use test kits recognised by and registered with the ministry to ensure the quality and accuracy of the results.
“Please use it with care and attention. All medicinal, cosmetic, and medical products as well as rapid test kits need to be registered with the ministry, which reviews their standards to determine whether they are technically good or not,” she said.
She said the ministry had so far registered four brands of rapid test kits, and the sub-commission for education and training and public communication is now producing a video spot to explain how to use rapid test kits.
It is a significant contribution to virus detection and timely prevention of an outbreak, she said.
