A recent appearance on the nationally syndicated Wendy Williams show business mogul Magic Johnson announced the medical approval of an at home HIV Testing Kit.
“Magic” Johnson is the new face of OraQuick, in the era where more African-Americans are infected with the HIV virus at a faster rate than the continent of Africa. This my help to slow down the startling statistics of infected people.
“In the HIV and AIDS fight we needed an in-home kit because the stigma behind going to the doctor or to a HIV and AIDS clinic to get a shot sometimes for some people, and probably that’s millions of people, they just didn’t wanna do it… Now we are going to take away the fear of going to a doctor or clinic for them,”
The FDA approved testing kit is 99.9 persent accurate in detecting people who are negative of the virus and a little over 90% certain of infected individuals.
Results are ready in 20 minutes. Available at pharmacies in CVS and Walgreens and online at a cost of approximately $40 per testing kit.
