Will You Take the Covid-19 Test?
In order to travel overseas or entrance into entertainment relaxation venues. Will you take the covid test? :confused:

Entertainment relaxation venues e.g. KTV, disco, pub, bar, GL, MP and Spa
(Presume after -ve result can go maskless in the venues)

Multiple options allowed. This is a public vote. :D

For payment of the test, please note if you insist not paying for it, but willing to take it, the cost of testing may end up cost transfer to you, hidden in your bill. :rolleyes:


SINGAPORE - A variety of Covid-19 tests - with the latest being over-the-counter test kits - are now under Singapore’s belt, allowing fast, extensive, easy and accurate tests to be conducted as the nation raises its game to fight the virus.

Here's a look at the different tests.

Reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction test (RT-PCR)

Swab test from the nose or back of throat, or from sputum. Looks for genetic sequences of Covid-19.

Cost: Over $150 to $200 for pre-departure testing. If you have been advised by your doctor to take a swab test, this will be free.

Time taken: A few hours.

Ease of use:
Requires the use of specialised lab machines.

Accuracy: Gold standard for testing. Sensitivity rate (ability to detect those who are positive): more than 93 per cent.

Other details: Very uncomfortable. An average of over 55,000 PCR and ART tests were carried out each day in the second half of May.
Antigen rapid test (ART)


Some involve using a nasal swab from the lower part of the nose. Looks for proteins on the surface of the virus called antigens.

Cost: As low as $10.

Time taken: 20 to 30 minutes.

Ease of use: Deployment is very flexible because it is a handheld device and can be done en masse with many people being swabbed at the same time. ARTs have been rolled out to almost all the public health preparedness clinics that are providing the “swab and send home” service and all polyclinics. To expand testing capacity, the Government is hoping to deploy them to private GPs as well.

Accuracy: Not as accurate as PCR tests, but able to pick up infections early. Sensitivity rate: 82 per cent.

Other details: Those with acute respiratory symptoms are required to take an ART test on top of a PCR test to allow for faster detection of cases. Used heavily for pre-event testing.


No swabbing; just blowing into a mouthpiece or cartridge.

Cost: Estimated to be around $25.

Time taken: Under two minutes.

Ease of use: Involves some equipment.

Accuracy: More than 90 per cent of the accuracy of a PCR test.

Other details: The Breathonix breathalyser is now used at the Causeway.
Over-the-counter tests


Like pregnancy kits, these could be ART tests which are purchased from pharmacies and administered at home.

Cost: Price to be confirmed.

Time taken: ART usually takes 20 to 30 minutes.

Ease of use: Ease of use to be confirmed.

Accuracy: ART tests typically have a sensitivity rate of 82 per cent.

Other details: People who are worried about Covid-19 and wish to put their mind at ease, such as front-line workers who may wish to test themselves daily. Will be simple to use and not so uncomfortable.

experienced PCR tests twice so far.
Nothing much, just feels like eating wasabi.
But if everything need to do PCR test is very costly.
Antigen tests are more realistic if tests are needed to visit public venues.
