The Health Ministry has yet to identify rapid test kits that are accurate and reliable.

Health director-general Datuk Dr Noor Hisham Abdullah said that on Friday, adding that his ministry is still evaluating and ratifying the test kits because Malaysia does not wish to repeat the mistakes of countries like Spain and the United Kingdom, where rapid test kits there had resulted in false negatives and false positives.
