However, some might note that the test results are changing and it is hard to detect accurately.

According to specialist Dr Arisman Abdul Rahman, it is best to do your saliva or swab test 3 to 5 days after there are already symptoms. 

Check his detailed explanation here:

Your body will have a higher viral load during that time and you will start experiencing symptoms. Thus, the result will be more accurate.

Here are the exact times you should take the self-test:
- the first day that symptoms appear

- the third day of being symptomatic

- the third day as a close contact, whether symptomatic or not
