COVID Crisis: Covid Home Test Kit gets approval; guidelines on who can use it issued

On Wednesday, the Indian Council of Medical Research, the nodal body in the battle against the virus, gave the green light to Rapid Antigen Kits for conducting Covid tests at home, and provided specific guidelines on who can use it and how. Only symptomatic individuals and immediate contacts of people who tested positive in the lab should use the home test, according to the ICMR. The use of indiscriminate testing is not recommended. Mylab Discovery Solutions Ltd, based in Pune, developed the CoviSelfTM (PathoCatch) COVID-19 OTC Antigen LF system. The home test should be carried out in accordance with the instructions given in an app that can be downloaded from the Google Play and Apple Stores.
