Capitalism over public health? Ya don't say. ABC News:
Major retailers have increased the price of at-home COVID-19 tests now that an agreement with the White House to sell them at a fixed price has expired.
In September, Walmart, Kroger and Amazon agreed to sell the two-pack boxes of at-home rapid antigen tests for $14 for three months amid a surge in positive cases with the delta and omicron variants. The agreement has since expired, according to a White House official.
Walmart is now charging $19.88 per box, where available, and Kroger has raised the price to $23.99.
Really great publicity as both retailers are trending as of this writing, and not in a nice way.
