yikes! And they said it was going to be cheap..
I was skeptical because on channel 4 news they said there would be a kit available 'within days' and that was two weeks ago.Public Health England then said these tests were not reliable.

Yeah it’s only like 60% reliable. The swabs with medical grades equipment are best as they’re 100% plus you don’t need bloodtest if it’s a swab

i have and that figure isn't anywhere. i don't think youre being accurate. they detect antigens present in the body when you have the virus.

The tests that hospitals use are also nowhere near 100% reliable. There are lots of false negatives.
