After studying prices being charged for antigen tests in neighboring countries, Spain has decided to set a fixed rate charge of 2.94€ per test. Spain fixed the price test at pharmacies accross the country yesterday after the tests were reportedly being sold for up to three times the new fixed price.
Starting tomorrow, January 15th, buying an antigen test from a pharmacy in Spain will be considerably cheaper, now that the national government has decided pharmacies must sell each of these rapid self-tests for €2.94 at most.
When speaking about the decision at a press conference on Thursday, Spanish Health Minister Carolina Darias said:
“The main objective has been to set a price that’s as affordable as possible, always maintaining the necessary balance so that the product is available in pharmacies.”
