COVID-19: CFL To Release 20-Minute Result Oriented Test Kit Into Nigerian Market by ajibola1979(m): 1:22am On May 05, 2020
As part of its Corporate Social Responsibility, one of Nigeria’s leading facilities management and marketing companies, Confederated Facilitators Limited, CFL is set to launch fast result oriented medical test kit into the Nigerian market.

The facility company, which is doing this in partnership with its British partner, would on Wednesday launch the lofty project.

These are Rapid Antigen test kits produced in South Korea and have been highly effective in the testing of suspected cases of Coronavirus in United Kingdom, USA and other parts of Europe as well as flashpoint in Asia like China The product turns out result in 20 minutes after application on suspected Covid-19 cases. It tests for the existence of current and live infections in individuals.

The Managing Director of CFL, Lai Omotola who laments the number of days awaiting results of tested cases in Nigeria following the PCR and antibodies procedures currently used in the country, says there is need to test more at a faster and cheaper rate considering the huge population size of Nigeria. These Antigen tests are particularly useful, faster and cheaper in Resource Deficient geographies where PCRs are not readily available

He added that the country cannot afford to continue with the present system of testing ahead of expected spike in the number of cases as relaxation of the lockdown in place the last one month, commences this Monday.

Omotola appealed to the Private Sector and other stakeholders to step out on behalf of the Federal and State Governments to massively patronise the product in order to ensure a better and faster management of the testing procedures.

It was reliably gathered that the CFL and its UK based partner, will make available about 750,000 Antigen tests into the Nigerian market this week.

People have been trying to launch these rapid test kits into Nigeria for a while now even with the problems (of false positives and false negatives) associated with the antigen tests.

Well, since efforts of Nigerians are never appreciated by Nigerians, lets see where this leads us

cool


nothing beats the Lab test for now, all this test kits are far from accurate,.. imagine how doomed you would be if the test kits mistakenly diagnosed you positive of Covid 19, and the doctors claim you are asymptomatic only for them to lock you up for 14 days with people with acute corona virus, coughing blood in your face and into the air you breath at the isolation center where you later contract the virus and die a painful death coughing endlessly even after being pronounced dead

This kind of gesture is necessary if we are to get ahead of the situation, more testing means more assurance of safe lockdown easing

I hope its margin of error would he highly minimal.

Antigen test kits have an unreliable issue of false positives.

The problem is that most Nigerians don't even understand why NCDC is being careful to utilize just any rapid test kits. The pressure to match the numbers of other African countries is high.
Only few Nigerians know why the PCR is more accurate than most of these rapid kits.

The hilarious one is the comparison with Ghana when Ghana actually pools tests. A method which has not been used since World War 2 and there is a reason why it has not been used since then

90% accuracy is a huge problem. It means in every 100, 10 of the results will be wrong.

In this case, you will have positive people testing negative and discharged into the community to re-infect others.

Work done, zero
