I have just received my Covid-19 Self Test (Rapid Antigen Test) package and the first thing I noticed was the legend "Made in China" on the box.

In view of where the virus originated, I feel a little anxious about using it.

I don't blame you.
the Chinese are building you a nuclear power plant and you're worried about a test stick!
The chances are that the piece of hardware you are touching now .. has been in Chinese hands before it's been in yours.
China is a massive country, nearly 40 times the size of the UK. Although Covid-19 was first identified in the local area around Wuhan, most of the rest of the country has largely remain Covid-free. (The Wuhan outbreak was brought under control remarkably swiftly too). So the test kits have been imported from country which actually has one of the lowest rates of Covid in the world.

Your logic seems to me to be akin to someone in China receiving a test kit labelled 'Made in the EU' to identify a different disease, which was only ever prevalent in Greece (where it had long since been eradicated anyway), panicking just because the kit was manufactured in Norway!

The majority of the UK population have been putting disposable face masks, nearly all made in China, over their mouths and noses for many months now. I'm unaware of anyone contracting Covid-19 from them!

Get a grip!
'Get a grip' is about two years too late. The sky has fallen.
I presume this question was tongue in cheek Canary?
Everything is made in China these days.
>>> Everything is made in China these days

. . . including about 2000 babies every hour ;-)
