The result of constant research over the last year has made it possible to launch a Covid 19 detection tool. The newly invented ARDT Kit (Antigen Rapid Detection Test Kit) is easy to use. The results are 90% accurate. The Covid test can be done at home with a throat fluid and a nasal swab. This kit has been sent to the Government of India for approval.
