Rapid Antigen tests will be carried out from today to identify COVID-19 patients after the Director General of Health Services approved the test yesterday, Chief Epidemiologist Dr. Sudath Samaraweera said today.

He said the test will be used especially for contacts of the Covid-19 patients and people who arrive at hospitals with Covid-19 symptoms.

“We will be able to rapidly identify Covid-19 patients because this test will be carried out at the site of the collection of the sample. It should not be carried out in a laboratory and the test will only take 30 minutes to receive the reports,” he said. (Ajith Siriwardana)
