50,000 lateral flow kits delivered to the Island

Stocks replenished as recent supplies snapped up

Another 50,000 lateral flow devices have been delivered to the Isle of Man.

Stocks of the home Covid-testing kits are to be distributed to pharmacies and local authority outlets over the next two days.

Supplies have ran out quickly in recent weeks since the Island's isolation rules changed.

Earlier this week around 100,000 kits were snapped up in less than 48 hours.

Government says around 230,000 devices have been brought to the Island so far, and a regular supply of 130,000 a week is being arranged going forward.

Pharmacies are due to be restocked on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday next week, and local authorities on Tuesday and Thursday.

People are being reminded to only request a maximum of seven tests to allow enough supplies for others.
