Pharmacy Board warns issues can arise with over the counter rapid COVID tests

President of the Pharmacy Board of Trinidad and Tobago, Andrew Rahaman, says certain procedural issues can arise should individuals try to do a rapid antigen COVID-19 test on their own.

Speaking with Izzo.com today, the P.B.T.T. senior official, made the statement on the heels of Health Minister, Terrence Deyalsingh’s,
comment this week a probe will be done after ads on social media appeared for a pharmacy in south Trinidad selling the rapid antigen
COVID-19 test kits.

Minister Deyalsingh at a news briefing on Wednesday said “I had a specific discussion with Chief Medical Officer, Dr Roshan Parasram that we are going to be investigating all of these and bring the necessary charges.”

The Health Minister said “the charge under the public health regulation is a couple hundreds of thousands of dollars and six months in jail.”

‘We are taking this very, very seriously, today the P.B.T.T. President reflected on the development explaining what can happen if a bad sample is taken.”
