A medical supply company was only told this morning the Government was seconding its rapid antigen tests.  

The Health Ministry's come under pressure since it was revealed the same's happened to other businesses.  

Health Works Director Claire Connor told Heather du Plessis-Allan her company had hundreds of thousands of tests on order before they were told it was all going to the Government. 

“Well, it’s a very tight spot for us, because we have a lot of businesses that we are already working with, that are getting rapid antigen tests from us and now we’re ringing them up to say I’m really sorry but we can’t supply you with anymore.”
