Washington – The Pan American Health Organisation (PAHO) says that a new affordable, reliable antigen diagnostic test that was recently approved by the World Health Organisation (WHO) and can be performed anywhere, is set to transform the region’s COVID-19 response by allowing health workers to carry out accurate, rapid testing, even in remote communities.
