FDA approves first over-the-counter HIV test

The FDA has approved the first over-the-counter HIV test.

Now people can test themselves for the virus that causes AIDS in the privacy of their homes.

The test detects the presence of HIV in saliva. It’s collected using a mouth swab. Results are in within 20 to 40 minutes. They’ll be sold in several stores including Walgreens, CVS and Wal-Mart.

The company is not announcing a price as yet, but they say it'll be less than $60.
