The test is carried out by health care professionals. The results can be read after 15 minutes. Skåne will be one of the first regions in the country to use the test writes Region Skåne in a press release.
There are long queues for people to get themselves tested.
– When we start using the rapid tests, we can have faster response times. It’s of great value for individual patients, but it can also provide fast results of infection in nursing homes for example, or if the test needs to be carried out at the doctor’s surgery.
The tests are so-called antigen tests. They are used to identify possible infections. In the event of a positive test result, an additional test will be carried out.
