KKM : No Online Advertising / Sale Of COVID-19 Rapid Test Kits!
On 24 March 2020, the Medical Device Authority (PBPP) of the Malaysia Ministry of Health issued a statement, directly admonishing MYEG for advertising and promoting their COVID-19 rapid test kits without prior approval.
Allowing the online advertising and sale of such rapid test kits will increase the risk of infection, because the public does not have the necessary knowledge to interpret the results, or handle the situation should they receive a positive result.
That’s why they believe the COVID-19 screening test should be performed by trained healthcare professionals in a health facility certified by the Ministry of Health.
The PBPP notes that while COVID-19 rapid test kits may receive Special Access exemptions to fast-track their availability in the market, it is NOT PERMITTED to promote them through advertisements.
In addition, the PBPP stressed that such “fast tracked” COVID-19 rapid test kits can only be distributed through authorised health facilities.
They also pointed out that anyone who contravenes the Medical Devices Act 2012 (Act 737) can be prosecuted via two sections :
- Section 5(2) : Fined up to RM 200,000, or jailed up to 3 years, or both
- Section 44(2) : Fined up to RM 300,000, or jailed up to 2 years, or both
