Ten Chinese COVID-19 self-testing agents Approved by BfArM in Germany
Ten Chinese COVID-19 antigen self-testing agents have been approved by BfArM in Germany . Germany began to sell the rapid self-test kit for the new coronavirus on March 6, and it sold out on the first day!
As of April 3, the German Federal Institute of Pharmaceuticals and Medical Devices (Bfarm) has approved 31 rapid self-test products, 11 of which are from China. The specific manufacturers are as follows. Among them, Beijing Hotview has two kits for nasopharyngeal swabs and saliva testing.
Germany began to sell the rapid self-test kit for the new coronavirus on March 6, and it sold out on the first day!
The German supermarket chain Aldi Group confirmed on the 6th that the rapid self-test product of the COVID-19 virus was launched on the same day and was sold out a few hours later. Each customer is limited to one pack, a total of 5 kits, and the price is 25 Euros (approximately RMB 194).
According to reports, the self-test kit can display the results within 15 minutes after the nasal swab is wiped, with an accuracy rate of 96%. But experts reminded that compared with polymerase chain reaction (PCR) detection, that is, nucleic acid detection, the reliability of self-test products is low.
Early diagnosis, early detection, rapid diagnosis of COVID-19 antigen contributes!
According to German media reports, Germany’s “unblocking” in March is imperative, and with the unblocking, politicians pin their hopes on rapid testing. The German Minister of Health, Span, said that with the launch of self-test kits, more people will have access to virus testing opportunities. If the virus infection can be detected as early as possible, the chain of infection can be cut faster and the virus can be prevented from spreading further.
And starting from the 8th, every German can go to a government-designated agency to receive a free rapid test for the COVID-19 virus every week.
The home-use self-inspection of COVID-19 has once again released market capacity, and Chinese companies will usher in opportunities for large orders when going overseas. It is understood that Chinese companies have already received huge orders and are already hiring a large number of workers urgently.
