As Poslovni Dnevnik writes, a member of the Management Board of Medika, Jakov Radosevic, was a recent guest on New Day/Novi Dan and commented on the introduction of rapid tests for home use that will appear on the Croatian market very soon.

“These home tests are very reliable, their reliability is over 98 percent,” assured Radosevic.

He added that Medika had already started with the distribution of home coronavirus test kits to pharmacies and specialised stores, which will be the only ones able to sell these tests.

“All Croatian pharmacies and specialised stores will have this test in their offer,” said Radosevic, and explained what kind of test it is.

“This is the first test approved by the European Union, it is a fast antigen test for at home self-testing. The instructions are tailored to users, which are non-medical people.

Asked whether the Croatian home coronavirus test results could be used before coming to a wedding or other organised event, as part of the conditions for a negative test result for coronavirus, Radosevic said he assumed they would be accepted.

“The information we received is that 120 people are to be allowed to attend an event and that they would have to have proof that they have recovered from coronavirus in the last six months, that they’ve been fully vaccinated at least two weeks before the event or that they had a negative test result, PCR or antigen. Accordingly, my assumption is that the Croatian Institute of Public Health has recommended that this test be accepted as well,” said Radosevic.

The price of the Croatian home coronavirus test kits will be between 75 and 80 kuna.
