Antigen tests commonly used to detect COVID-19 in children are not up to par.

According to new findings published in the British Medical Journal, the accuracy of tests for kids falls short of the minimum criteria set by the WHO and regulators in the U.S. and U.K.

Study authors say the report casts doubt on the effectiveness of the tests and their widespread use in schools.
