The US food and drug administration (FDA) has approved the use of the first coronavirus test, which can be performed independently at home.
“Today, the FDA granted permission for the emergency use of the first test for self-detection of COVID-19 in the home, which gives a quick result. The Lucia COVID-19 universal single-use kit is a molecular test… designed to detect the new SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus that causes COVID-19,” the regulator’s website says.
Users of the test-people over 14 years of age-must take material from the nasal cavity, after which they will be able to get the finished result within no more than half an hour. Currently, the test can only be obtained by a doctor’s prescription.
