A pilot programme of COVID-19 self-testing kits "using Amazon logistics" is reportedly about to be launched in the UK, APA reports citing Sputnik.

According to the outlet, throat swabs will be delivered to homes, with the sample recovered an hour later, as the results are subsequently announced via text message.

The entire test, which is understood to be different from earlier planned home testing for coronavirus antibodies, may be completed in under 48 hours.
