Good news coming out of Madrid today, about the price of antigen tests and vaccines.
The president of the Spanish government, Pedro Sánchez, has announced that he will regulate the price of antigen tests. "The debate we had before and during Christmas has been mainly the supply of these tests because there was a bottleneck and an exponential demand. Now that the issue has been resolved, we will take control of the prices of the tests "Sanchez said in an interview with Cadena SER on Monday morning. Sanchez has argued that it is the pharmacies that market these tests. In addition, the Spanish chief executive said that the state would buy 344,000 doses of Pfizer's antiviral against coronavirus this January and stressed that "it reduces the possibility of hospitalization by 88%."
