Kolkata: State government may allow the sale of COVID-19 rapid antigen test kits in open market if they clear the quality checks carried out by the health department.
The state government has already received proposals from some agencies to allow the sale of COVID-19 antigen kits so that people can buy these kits and examine themselves.
The antigen test kit which has been developed by a South Korean biotechnology firm SD Biosensor will cost around Rs 450.
Before being allowed to hit the markets, the antigen test kits may be applied on the people in the containment zones of the city.
The guidelines will also spell out norms as to how these antigen kits can be disposedoff.
