How Does It Work?
The Ministry of Health Malaysia has recommended to test patients who have symptoms of COVID-19 using a technique called Reverse Transcription Polymerase Chain Reaction or RT-PCR.
This test looks at the specific genetic material of the COVID-19 virus to determine whether it is present or not.
The RT-PCR test is also recommended for people without any symptoms who have come into contact with confirmed COVID-19 patients.
