WHO Says People Could Make "Inappropriate Decisions" If Rely On Results Of Antigen Test

The tests, which recently went on sale in Lidl, get a result quicker - but aren't as accurate as other types such as PCR

The Chief Medical Officer has strongly recommended against people buying and using antigen tests themselves.

Dr Margaret Harris from the WHO says people could get false reassurance from the result:

"If people are relying on a negative to think that they're not necessarily infected, that will not be correct, so if they're making decisions based on that, they'll be making inappropriate decisions."
