    Default C19 self help test kits

    EDITED: I just now (Sunday, 3/5/2020, @ 1:50 PM MDST) caught wind of this live, 34 minute, Youtube C19 self help test kit.

    Grulla, I don't have 34 minutes to view the video, but based on the concept and on the comments below the presentation, I'm going to conclude that this is not a test emerging from any reliable medical source, and once you've seen this comment, I'll be back to delete it... Unless you remember how to do that yourself.

    I believe this to be the credible source of the Rapid Covid19 test kit:

    Read the disclaimer: "This test has not been reviewed by the FDA. Negative results do not rule out SARS-CoV-2 infection, particularly in those who have been in contact with the virus. Follow-up testing with a molecular diagnostic should be considered to rule out infection in these individuals. Results from antibody testing should not be used as the sole basis to diagnose or exclude SARS-CoV-2 infection or to inform infection status. Positive results may be due to past or present infection with non-SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus strains, such as coronavirus HKU1, NL63, OC43 or 229E."

    And as you saw, it is not a "self-help test."

    It's not alone. A Maine agency has just released a 15-minute COVID-19 test as well. I think this video is deceptive. Further, I do not ever want to be taken to court or in any way be accused of promulgating misleading and dangerous information.
