Many countries have made Covid-19 test kit. People have choice of testing done for Coronavirus at local health care centers or can request designated lab to send sample collection kit.
In the second option like in USA, FDA has approved home sample collection kits. If anyone want to test for coronavirus infection, they can log into designated Lab website, create an account, answer questions and provide necessary information. If the person or family is eligible then, the lab will test sample collection kit to home by next day air with shipping label to ensure that sample reaches back lab for test within 24-48 hours.
The kit will have instruction on how to collect the samples along with cotton swabs, collection tubes with liquid and biohazard pouch to enclose the sample and return it to facility for testing. After completion of the test, report will be given to the concerned person.
