Medical practitioners council have raided Avane Cosmetic clinic after it alleged to sell coronavirus test kits.

In a brochure circulated on social media platforms, the clinic claimed that it can test for covid-19 at only Ksh3,000.

On Monday police accompanied officers from the Kenya Medical Practitioners and Dentists Council and arrested staff members from the clinic before shutting it down.

Since Avane clinic offers cosmetology services, many Kenyans on social media questioned how they were able to test for covid-19 since the government is still sending samples to South Africa.

Testing for coronavirus is crucial as it allows the infected person to avoid infecting others and to quickly receive the care they need.

According to our world data, the most common diagnostic tests for COVID-19 are called “PCR tests” that use swabbed samples from a patient’s nose and throat.
