How to take a coronavirus self-test swab
Dr Amir Khan shows you how to self-administer a swab test for coronavirus. It’s a simple nasal and throat swab (this is different to the nasopharyngeal swab test). This is for the self-test kits in the UK which check if you have coronavirus now – exact models may vary.
Please always follow the written instructions provided with your kit. If you're at home, please register your kit online per the instructions in your kit – otherwise you will not get your results. The Coronavirus Testing Call Centre can be contacted on 119 between the hours of 0700 – 2300. This service can be accessed by people with hearing or speech difficulties by calling 18001 0300 303 2713. Book your test at nhs.uk/coronavirus
