Story Highlights

  • Kovid self test kit worth Rs 230
  • Available at medical stores after ICMR approval

Kits to test themselves at home are being sold indiscriminately in the markets. After the approval of ICMR, thousands of kits are being sold daily at hundreds of medical stores in Indore, but the record of this is not with the Health Department or the Drug Department. Thousands of people are using it daily in Indore itself. Only patients who come positive know that they are corona infected. Neither the medical stores are keeping the records of those who buy the test nor does the health department know how many people have become positive after the test with this kit.

230 rupees kit

Mayank Mehta, who runs a medical store, told a news agency that the cost of the Kovid Self Test Kit is Rs 230. Its result is also effective. In this test, one line is shown to be negative and two lines to be positive. Every day 10 to 12 pieces of customers are bought and taken from here. Drug department officials have given us permission to sell it without keeping its record.

Another medical store operator Shashank Sharma told that this is a rapid test kit which tells in 15 minutes whether you are corona positive or negative. The government has given permission to sell it. We sell 15 to 20 kits daily. We have not yet been given any guidelines for keeping buyer records.

In this case, Chief Medical and Health Officer Dr Bhure Singh Setia told the news agency that no guideline has been issued regarding keeping records of self-covid test kits, but those who buy testing kits from medical stores are testing themselves. For them, we will instruct the drug department to take information about such people from the medical store so that they can be monitored.
