ART kit only a screening tool

The antigen rapid test (ART) kit should only be regarded as a screening tool, and the results should not be interpreted as the final diagnostic result, said Minister of Health Dato Seri Setia Dr Haji Mohd Isham bin Haji Jaafar during the daily press conference yesterday.

He recommended those with positive results from ART kits to undergo a confirmatory polymerase chain reaction (PCR) swab test, for diagnosing COVID-19.
