Constrained supply see COVID-19 test pricing increase.

China’s revocation of the rights for most COVID-19 test makers to export has seen available supply of the kits heavily constrained over the past 24 hours. Demand remains at all-time-highs, however.

That combination of supply and demand has led to the obvious outcome: increased prices. The Aeotec Health team has noted that the price of certified, tested, and exportable kits has risen some 100% on average at the source.
