The Ministry of Health also requires the Departments of Health of provinces and cities to strengthen inspection, examination and control of nCoV testing products floating on the market and the phenomenon of taking advantage of the Covid-19 epidemic situation to raise prices and increase prices.

Deputy Director of Ho Chi Minh City Department of Health Nguyen Hoai Nam, in a press conference in mid-July, advised people not to buy rapid test kits for sale online, which are not on the list licensed by the Ministry of Health.

According to Mr. Nam, many types of rapid tests sold on the market have low sensitivity and inaccurate results.

Ho Chi Minh City increased rapid antigen testing from the end of June. Ho Chi Minh City People’s Committee encouraged businesses to pay their own costs to buy rapid tests and test workers once a week.

Rapid antigen test is a rapid diagnostic test that detects the presence of Covid-19 virus antigens in respiratory samples.

Rapid antigen tests can be used outside the laboratory, but their accuracy is not equal to the RT-PCR method.

At the end of May, Bac Giang was the first locality in the country to pilot instructions for people in centralized quarantine areas to take rapid test samples for each other, to solve the problem of lack of medical human resources.

The rapid antigen testing option was decided by Minister of Health Nguyen Thanh Long to replace the Realtime RT-PCR testing method, from the afternoon of May 25, in the context of the number of infections in Bac Giang increasing and many people being sick.

Rapid test for Covid-19.
