Dissecting Our Covid-19 Testing Strategy

The Health Ministry has announced that Covid-19 home self-test kits will be made available for purchase in pharmacies and health facilities. We expand on that and look at our testing strategy by understanding why it matters, and how it helps in the fight against COVID-19. Then we look at what the states, specifically Selangor, have been doing on this front. Finally, we speak about how these home self-test kits enter the picture and how they can be utilised.
