    As a screening strategy, Costa Rica authorized the importation and use of Covid-19 self-tests, the Ministry of Health announced. Those interested in marketing this type of test must obtain authorization from the Customer Service Department of the Ministry of Health.

    Strict regulations

    These self-tests must be recommended by the World Health Organization / Pan American Health Organization or authorized by the “Strict regulatory authorities for the prequalification of in vitro tests”.

    “The tests must have a sensitivity equal to or greater than 80% (probability that the test result for a disease is positive if you really have the disease) and a specificity equal to or greater than 95% (probability that the results of a test are negative if you really do not have the disease) “, said the Ministry of Health.

    If this test is positive, people should isolate themselves and go to a health service to verify their result by RT-PCR.
