Experts: antigen tests are less sensitive to Omicron

Antigen tests may be less sensitive to the Omicron coronavirus strain.

In particular, researchers from the FDA and the US National Institutes of Health used samples from tested patients.

The test was less sensitive for the new strain of coronavirus. Sometimes it got a “false negative.”

The FDA, however, is not urging people to refrain from taking these rapid tests.
