@XTreme how does getting covid tests work in Spain? I read that the covid lateral flow tests have to be bought or appointments have to be made and that the govt had to intervene to cap the price at €3 per tests cos being ripped off for basic testing. 
Is it not like here were everyone has a free pack of them (shortage’s allowing) at home and tests regularly as a matter of course?

I don't know for sure.......I've seen signs in the Chemists to ask for test Kits but no idea if they're free or not.

I think most people just go in the Health Centre to get tested.

I’m beginning to see why we have high numbers then.
Apart from that shortage you’d be hard pushed to find a household here without a box of covid tests. But in Spain even capped at £3 euros its going to deter people from testing.
My family have all had to test weekly for various reasons and that would be €12 euros a time, one one period we had to test twice a week which would be €28! No way I’d pay that if we were symptom free.
I’m guessing that’s why you didn’t test when you and the wife felt a bit dodgy cos you don’t have a box of tests at home?

No.....it was because we only felt a bit groggy for a day and we had no symptoms whatsoever that suggested it was Covid.

If we wanted a test then we'd just go to the Health Centre......it's open 24 hours a day.

My eldest son, who works in a pharmacy, says that they only get a few boxes of kits in per day and they run out pretty quickly. The rest of his day is spent explaining to customers why they haven't got any kits! 😂😂😂
