Officials continue to be accused of hoarding rapid antigen tests. 

A number of businesses say their orders have been seconded by the Ministry of Health. 

But the Ministry rejects those claims, and says it's only "consolidating" orders heading into the country. 

Employers and Manufacturers Association Chief Executive Brett O'Riley says Roman Travers it's not fair. 

“Because they’ve taken up a lot of the supply in the New Zealand market, that’s taken away orders that have been placed for business that now no longer can be filled.”
