The first two vending machines selling COVID-19 antigen test kits and PCR screening kits in Fukuoka Prefecture have been introduced in Dazaifu City and Higashi Ward, Fukuoka City. The antigen test kit provides results for users in about 15 minutes (¥3,000 ea.) The PCR screening kit allows users to receive results within about 24 hours after sending the sample to the lab, while the test accuracy is higher than that of antigen test (¥4,000 ea.) Source: FBS
