Island runs out of lateral flow tests again

120,000 due next week

Pharmacies on the Isle of Man have run out of lateral flow tests again.

That's despite a delivery of stock yesterday. 

People are now being asked not to request home testing kits 'for the time being' – and not to stockpile them when they do become available. 

Government says 120,000 are due to be delivered next week. 

To date 40,000 have been collected by residents who are deemed close contacts of someone with Coronavirus. 

A list of pharmacies, and additional pick-up points, will be announced when delivery of the kits has been completed.
