Any results from the Covid-19 home test kit, including positive, negative, or invalid, must be reported to the Ministry of Health through the MySejahtera app, says Health Minister Datuk Seri Dr Adham Baba.
He told Bernama that it is the responsibility of the consumer to report the results honestly.
Anyone who tested positive must go to the nearest private health facility, Covid-19 Assessment Center, or any health clinic to get a health evaluation before their status is uploaded to MySejahtera.
“If the results are negative but the individual shows symptoms, they are advised to go to a private clinic or health clinic for the same evaluation, but those who got an invalid result must do the test again”Dr Adham Baba
However, the MySejahtera app does not have the self-reporting for self-test kit feature that is mentioned at this time.
Meanwhile, the Medical Device Authority has listed five approved self-test Covid-19 test kits for use in Malaysia. The list currently includes Salixium from Malaysia, Gmate from Korea, and three more test kits from China.
