Yesterday, MYEG announced that they are offering COVID-19 rapid test kits for just RM 99, but today, the Malaysia Ministry of Health declared those COVID-19 rapid test kits as FAKE! What’s going on???
MYEG COVID-19 Rapid Test Kits
On 17 March 2020, MYEG announced the availability of COVID-19 Rapid Test Kits :
MYEG is selling each COVID-19 Rapid Test Kits in packs of 10, for RM 990 – which works out to RM 99 per test kit.
They are both not only much cheaper than current COVID-19 lab tests, but claim to be able to return results within 15 minutes.
MYEG COVID-19 Rapid Test Kits Are Fake?
The very next day though, the Malaysia Ministry of Health announced that it was FAKE NEWS :
What’s going on? Despite many people asking KKM (Malaysia Ministry of Health) why they declared it as fake news, since the COVID-19 rapid test kits are really being offered by MYEG, they have not responded.
However, it is possible that they are labelling it as fake news because the COVID-19 Rapid Test Kit has not been approved by the KKM or the IMR (Institute of Medical Research).
This is a developing story, and we will update it when we receive new information!
MYEG Insists COVID-19 Rapid Test Kits Are Genuine
MYEG issued a statement claiming that their COVID-19 rapid test kits are genuine :
MYEG COVID-19 Rapid Test : How Does It Work?
COVID-19 rapid tests cut down time and costs by looking for antibodies to COVID-19 in a blood sample, instead of nasopharyngeal swab (NP) or oropharyngeal swab (OP).
The MYEG COVID-19 rapid test looks for both IgM – the first antibodies our body makes to fight a new infection, and IgG – the most abundant antibodies in the body.
To “fish” for COVID-19 specific IgM and/or IgG antibodies, these rapid test kits use selected parts of the COVID-19 capsule proteins as antigens – bait – which are combined with colloidal gold as a marker.
When you drop a blood sample, COVID-19 antibodies (if present in the blood) will be “attracted” to the “bait” – the COVID-19 capsule proteins in the rapid test.
The antibodies will combine with the antigens, forming a visible, coloured compound which will appear as a red / burgundy line in the test strip.
