Rapid antigen tests will provide ‘peace of mind’

AnteoTech CEO Derek Thompson says rapid antigen tests will help provide “peace of mind” and allow people to check if they have COVID from the comfort of home.

It comes amid news rapid antigen COVID-19 tests will be available for purchase in Australia from November.

“At home tests are usually used when you think might have a symptom and you just want to check and make sure that you’ve got a cold or COVID,” he told Sky News host Paul Murray.

“That will give you peace of mind or an indication that you should isolate.”
