Here’a good news for people who don’t like the hassle of going to a medical centre to get tested for Covid-19.
Malaysians can test for the virus at the convenience of their homes soon.
This is because the Health Ministry (MoH) through the Medical Devices Authority (MDA) has released a list of two Covid-19 self-test kits that have received conditional approval for import and distribution in the country.
Only two kits have received conditional approval
According to a report by Bernama
, the kits are Salixium Covid-19 Rapid Antigen Rapid Test (Saliva/Nasal Swab Samples) made by Reszon Diagnostic International Sdn Bhd Malaysia and Gmate Covid-19 Ag Saliva For Home Use by Philosys Co Ltd, South Korea.
The post also said that the test kits can be sold at registered community pharmacies or health facilities.
Yay, to convenience!
