OFT - 'Stick to NHS-provided lateral flow kits'

Counterfeit testing kits have circulated in the UK

People are being advised to stick with government provided lateral flow devices rather than considering buying them online.

Large supplies of genuine home testing kits have been arriving on the Isle of Man - but high demand means they're collected quickly.

The Office of Fair Trading says it's aware of incidents in the UK where some people have ended up ordering counterfeit kits.

Chair Martyn Perkins says whilst this isn't an issue yet on Manx shores it's something they're monitoring:

Martyn Perkins is standing for the constituency of Garff in the Isle of Man General Election on Thursday, 23 September.

The other candidates standing for the area are Daphne Caine, Andrew Smith, Jamie Smith and Manx Labour Party’s Gareth Young.
