Covid-19 self-tests are now part of the National Testing Strategy for SARS-CoV-2, and the notice of their results is important for monitoring the national testing activity, according to the Dr. Ricardo Jorge National Health Institute (INSA).
Since the sale of self-tests in pharmacies and parapharmacies was allowed, pharmaceutical distributors have distributed more than 500,000 self-tests.
