3,700 people told they had Covid-19 - but results were wrong

Some 3,700 tests for the coronavirus carried out in Sweden gave inaccurate results, telling people they tested positive for Covid-19 although they did were not infected.

The Public Health Agency announced the news on Tuesday after the false positive results were discovered at two different labs in Sweden.

The faulty PCR test results, dating back to March, concern people who used a particular self-testing kit from China and who only had mild or no symptoms of Covid-19.

In Sweden, these tests were used as part of self-testing-schemes in Blekinge, Dalarna, Gävleborg, Stockholm, Sörmland, Västerbotten, Västernorrland, Västmanland and Västra Götaland regions.

Those affected will be contacted personally by the health authorities, on Thursday at the latest.
