Rapid Antigen Test: With the opening of schools in many countries from next week, many parents will use the Rapid Antigen Test (RAT) to test their children for Kovid-19 at home. Many governments have strongly recommended testing of school students and employees. This can be challenging for many parents, especially if their child has developmental or behavioral problems.
Let’s know how to test children safely
prepare for test
In order to successfully conduct the test, it is important to prepare the child well and tell what will happen, so that the situation can be controlled a little and the restlessness can be reduced.
sit and talk with your child
Parents will be required to do RAT twice in a week in the morning. This will not always happen, but at least for the first four weeks after school opens, testing will be required. If they are not found infected with the corono virus in the test, then they can go to school.
Knowing the right technology will allow you to do this test quickly and safely at home or even let your kids do the test. Usually give yourself 20 minutes and remember not to be in a hurry while examining your child.
how to check
First place the kit on the table along with the swab packet. After this, place the child’s head on a pillow on a chair or sofa where they can lie down or sit comfortably. You can also make a small child sit on your lap. After this, hold the nasal sampling tube in one hand and the other hand on the child’s cheek, upper lip or chin and take the sample. Insert the sampling tube a couple of centimeters inside the nostril and rotate it for about 15 seconds. After this add the sample to the liquid solution and mix for about 15 seconds. Then carefully destroy the sample tube. Wash your hands and wait. Most test kits take 15 minutes to produce the results.
Obviously, RAT testing is not the only way to eliminate or reduce cases of Kovid-19 in schools. Apart from this, it is also necessary to vaccinate children, wear masks inside the school and inform about covid appropriate behavior outside the school.
