About self-testing at home

Rapid antigen test is a screening method that detects COVID-19 virus on those who are asymptomatic. You can conduct the tests at home without a laboratory or any medical personnel. You only need to put your saliva or nose-swab sample into the chemical solution, then wait for your result. Usually, the result can come back within 20 minutes.

Rapid antigen tests usually have a higher false negative rate – they are not as accurate as PCR tests. Preliminary research shows that rapid antigen tests can determine 72% of symptomatic COVID patients and 58% of asymptomatic patients. On the other hand, PCR test is very sensitive and accurate with an accuracy rate of 95% to 100%.
