The Office of Competitive Defense in the United Kingdom will review the prices of PCR tests for Covit-19

The British Office for Match Protection has said it will handle the cost of testing for COVID-19. He will do so after Health Minister Sajid Javed complained that some British holidaymakers had to pay large sums to take government-ordered tests.

PCR tests show that most British vacations cost an average of £ 75 and a family of four costs £ 300. However, according to Javid, many companies charged significantly higher fees.

Maximum price 250

Prices quoted by providers on government websites range from £ 17 to 250. So Javid asked the company to intervene against it “Unfair practices” In submitting test providers.

“People can go on vacation to see or relax with family, without having to worry about overpaying for PCR tests.” The social and microblogging network said the 51-year-old politician on Twitter.

They have the power to intervene directly

The Office of Competitiveness has the power to intervene directly if it finds a practice, but it can make recommendations to ministers so they can act quickly.

“We are aware of the growing concerns about the market for the Covit-19 test for international travelers. We are pleased to make recommendations to the Minister of Foreign Affairs on ensuring that passengers have access to affordable and reliable tests. The office said in a statement.
