PETALING JAYA: Three Covid-19 self-test kits are now available for purchase via the MySejahtera app.
Users can click on the new Covid-19 Self Test icon on the app’s home page to view the list of self-test kits, namely the Salixium Covid-19 Rapid Antigen Test Kit (RM39.90), Gmate Covid-19 Ag Saliva For Home Use (RM39.90) and JusChek Covid-19 Antigen Rapid Test (RM29).
They will then be directed to an online pharmacy platform to view more details about the product and make payment for delivery.
Users can also submit their test results through the Update Self Test Result feature, whereupon they will be directed to the MySejahtera Helpdesk and prompted to input their details such as address, type of sample (saliva, nasal, others), and test outcome (positive, negative, invalid).
Users will be informed that if the result is positive, they will be categorised as a Confirmed Case in MySejahtera following a verification process.
According to guidelines from the Health Ministry (MOH), Covid-19 self-test kits have been approved for screening purposes only and all test results need further confirmation with the RT-PCR test, which requires nasal or throat swab samples.
Users can also now locate the nearest screening facilities under the new Health Facilities icon. They are required to allow the app to detect their location, following which a map will be generated with pins showing details – such as names, phone numbers and addresses – of the clinics closest to them.
MySejahtera stated in a Twitter post yesterday that users are required to update their app to access the new features.
