    I read single tests are wholesale $1.50 each to import and sold to retailers for $3 each. From there it's all profit for retailers.
    Apparently there is tons of stock - it's just retailers drip feeding to get maximum $

      That's why this need to be provided by gov for free

      • -5

        And tax payer indirectly pay a hefty premium for it like all gov projects.

          It is public health like Medicare not like free food

          • -3

            @jamking: Agree and supportive of such. Merely stating that is it not 'free' per se.

            Too often that people think that 'free' government initiatives being - well, free as what the word means.

            • +2

              @DisabledUser141524: how are the tax payers going to pay a "hefty premium" if these are given out for free by the government?

              • +2

                @bigdumbhead: It is what it is. Particularly this is on public health care. Similar to Medicare, as well the 'private insurance' scam where one gets taxed more if he/she doesnt take up private health 'insurance' that covers jack all. This whole arrangement is essentially handing out free money to private health 'insurnace' providers.

                If you get a chance, look at some of the privatised deals, basically free $$ for the private sector. Dodgy (short of being corrupt) government spending.

                I sometimes where the 45% tax portion goes to, and an incompetent and not so transparent government deals is a good indicator.

                • -1

                  @DisabledUser141524: what does that have to do with your statement that taxpayers would "indirectly pay a hefty premium" if the government were to give us the rapid antigen tests at no extra cost, as opposed to right now us having to buy them from a retail store?

                  • @bigdumbhead: Too often that people think that 'free' government initiatives being - well, free as what the word means.

                    Per earlier comment.

      Beautiful and working as intended! Just leave it to the private market /s

      Major pharmacy wholesalers (in Australia) are charging $8 to 10+GST each (for single units) and supply is constrained. ie/ Even pharmacies have a "Get in line and if you're lucky we'll send you a few each day" type response from wholesalers. Therefore a $15-16 or so retail price on a single unit or $5X per 10 kits delivered is a bargain.

      Keep in mind the wholesalers in Australia are air freighting allot of these kits in from far corners of the globe, using expensive logistics companies to rush stock in, they are then being delivered often outside normal business hours by bespoke couriers to stores, who then employ Aussies at $50-60 per hour plus 20% on costs to sell them to consumers in stores that cost $1000-$3000 per m2 per year to rent.

      Retailers drip feeding and making super profit isn't happening in any pharmacy I know in Australia.

      Where did you read this exactly? It's beyond depressing how many people will just blindly believe anything that fits in with their pre-formed opinion nowadays!

      • +3

        news.com.au had an article about it which does make me believe it's unsubstantiated

  • +5

    my brother in law works for a pharmacy and they got it for $6 each

    • +6

      That's good. I would think frontliners who are exposed to sick people everyday should be getting these for a massive discount, preferable free.

      • +6

        no I meant the pharmacy got it from wholesale for $6 each lol

        • oh. LOL!

    • +2

      $6 per test kit or $6 per box( in this case 4 test kits per box)?

      • +4

        per kit

    • Well, this is the time when business can make some extra cash.

        99% false. Someone is trying to stuff society around

        • they're not false, they just sell out really quick once posted. if you know somewhere in stock better not to share it with the world lol.

          • @silenthillrocks: I saw a Chemist Warehouse listed in a street that only has houses…. And that suburb doesn't even have a CW at all…

  • +8

    Stupid question .. but why is it so important to do a self-test if you are feeling sick?

    What difference does it make if you know it is COVID?

    Wouldn't everyone just stay at home like they would whether it is a cold or covid?

    • +1

      Save doctor's time if you need to go to emergency…And may save a PCR test if symptom is minor

      • +1

        I've been pretty tired for the last 4 or 5 days .. my nose has been a bit stuffy .. had booster pfizer about 2 weeks ago .. but otherwise feel great .. surely I don't have to rush to emergency or RAT or PCR based on this?

        • -2

          I would suggest to get a PCR You already had symptoms

    • +13

      People don't stay a home with a cold or flu - until 2020, we were told to soldier on and contribute to the economy - that's the problem.

      • +8

        Lol .. yea agree .. I was being a bit sarcastic .. really annoys me at work when losers turn up with the cold or flu.

    • +6

      I think a few main things. Firstly, you will take different precautions with those in your house if it is COVID. Secondly, you may not really be showing symptoms, but have been exposed for an extended time, so want to ensure you do not have COVID before going to a high risk setting (ie, visiting your grandparents). Finally, they're needed for travel and to visit some high risk settings.

      • +1

        Ok .. that makes sense .. but doesn't really seem to justify the mad panic by everyone to get RATs or PCRs.

      • Except they're very unreliable if you don't have symptoms.

    • +1

      I thiknk one of the reasons is so you can tell your close contacts to look out for symotoms or to try to avoid close contact with a lot of people. If you havent been in contact with anyone lately, then it probably makes no difference for you.

      • +1

        I guess so .. but people with a cold or flu should still avoid close contact with people.

        • +3

          Your close contacts might not be sick, but if you can confirm you have covid, then you can inform your close contacts that you have covid and that, even if they are not sick, they probably should avoid visiting their elders or anyone really.

    • probably because people don't know if it's covid or not. similar symptoms to a cold so unless you have the more dramatic symptoms it's probably best to make sure it is actually covid

    • +1

      They are still required for some travel reasons, and many people need to show them as evidence if they want the time off work. It's also good if someone you had contact with is a confirmed case and you want to know if if you're asymptotic - means you're not waiting hours for PCQ test where 30% of people in the line do have covid.

    • +1

      So that even if I feel good, I can be (relatively) sure that I don't have COVID to pass to other people.

      E.g. before coming to the office, going out or meeting with friends and family.

      If I feel crook, I don't really need a test to tell me that I need to stay home and away from other people.

      • that makes the most sense i guess … thanks.

    • Wouldn't everyone just stay at home like they would whether it is a cold or covid?

      If people did that, then we wouldn't need the test kits/PCR/Covid Rules and covid would be no more.

      Likely its main use is people who need to work or are seeing a family member thats immune compromised or if you're asymptomatic especially if you can't get a PCR in time.
