Ministry monitoring ATK price rises

The Commerce Ministry is monitoring antigen test kit (ATK) prices to ensure they remain affordable amid the surge in Covid-19 infections.

Mallika Boonmeetrakul, an adviser to the commerce minister, said consumers can report overpriced ATKs to the 1569 hotline or provincial commerce offices. Officers can then conduct investigations and charge sellers if they are found to have overpriced ATKs.

Prices of some brands have increased due to high demand and stock shortages in both e-markets and drug stores.
