Convenience stores in Taiwan starts selling home-based COVID-19 rapid test kits

Home-based COVID-19 rapid testing kits will soon be available at convenience stores. The four major convenience chains will carry the kits, priced between 1,700 and 1,900 NT for a box of five units.

7-11 says the outlets with pharmaceutical licenses in northern Taiwan are ready to sell test kits, and Hi-Life plans to do so at stores in Taipei and New Taipei first. FamilyMart stores will also start selling the products.

In addition, COSMED will also carry the kits in its stores in the greater Taipei area and Taoyuan.

The Food and Drug Administration says it has approved five companies to either manufacture or import the rapid testing kits.

The FDA reminds people that if the tests show positive results, they should go to local hospital for a PCR test to confirm, and the hospital will follow up.
