JOHOR BARU, July 27 — Johor has received 100,000 Covid-19 antigen self-test kits for distribution statewide.
The Tunku Mahkota of Johor Tunku Ismail Sultan Ibrahim, through a post on his official Facebook page yesterday, said the self-test kits could increase the screening capacity and facilitate detection of Covid-19 cases more effectively.
“We need to increase ‘Test, Trace and Vaccinate’ if the herd immunity is to be achieved as soon as possible,” he said.
Tunku Ismail said the self-test kits would also help in efforts to control the spread of the Covid-19 epidemic apart from identifying hotspot locations. — Bernama
