Test yourself RTK-Ag self-test kit with before travelling


KUCHING: Members of the public have been urged to conduct a Covid-19 self-test first before going on holiday or returning to their hometowns by using the self-testing Antigen Rapid Test Kit (RTK-Ag).

Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department (Parliament and Law) Datuk Seri Dr Wan Junaidi Tuanku Jaafar said the RTK-Ag self-test kit could help individuals to monitor their health and assess the risk in order to seek health treatment before it is too late.

“In addition, the RTK-Ag Covid-19 self-test kit is easy and fast to carry out while also expediting the process of positive individuals being identified and subsequently isolated.

“With that, the risk of transmission to other individuals, especially the vulnerable, can be reduced,” he said in a Facebook post.

He also advised the public to use RTK-Ag self-test kits which have been approved by the Medical Device Authority (MDA) to obtain valid results. 

“Each individual must report their test results in the MySejahtera application – whether the results are positive, negative, or invalid – to allow follow-up action to be taken by the Health of Ministry (MoH),” he said.

Wan Junaidi, who is also Santubong MP, added that those with symptoms such as fever, cough, flu, and shortness of breath are advised to postpone their journey.

“Together, we protect ourselves and our loved ones. Be a responsible individual. Together, we fight the Covid-19 pandemic,” he said.
