Making Covid-19 Self Test Kits Safely Accessible

Jack Shen Lim, Treasurer, Malaysian Pharmacists Society

Making Covid-19 Self Test Kits Safely Accessible

The Malaysian Pharmacists Society has lodged a complaint with the Health Ministry over a link in MySejahtera, that promotes Covid-19 self-test kits from one particular company and site, Pharma2U. We speak to a representative to understand why buying self-test kits online poses a risk and how it can be better distributed.

*Correction: During the segment, we introduced Jack Shen Lim as Treasurer of the Malaysian Pharmaceutical Society. This is erroneous and it should be Malaysian Pharmacists Society.
