U.S. passes first COVID-19 test for home self-diagnosis


The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), responsible for giving the green light to the marketing of drugs, authorized this Wednesday the first test of COVID-19 for self-diagnosis at home, whose result can be known in a maximum of 30 minutes.

The test from the U.S. manufacturer Lucira Health received an authorization for emergency use, the FDA said in a statement, where he stressed that it is a single use and is “intended to detect the new coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 that causes COVID-19.

The test, which can be accessed with a prescription, can be used at home for people over 14 years of age with suspected disease; or in health care facilities such as doctors’ offices, hospitals, first aid clinics and emergency rooms.
