This will help ensure that more people can afford to screen themselves periodically, says Datuk Seri Alexander Nanta Linggi.
“It is now a necessity for every household to purchase the self-test kits due to the current coronavirus situation in the country.”
"With more economic sectors, schools and educational institutions now reopened, it is necessary for people to self-test periodically.”
The self-test kits are now also easily accessible as permission have been given by the ministry to allow more supermarkets and chain stores to sell authorised COVID-19 self-test kits.
To date, a total of 7,302 premises nationwide have been given the green light to sell self-test kits that have been approved by the Health Ministry and Medical Device Authority (MDA).
