The COVID-19 self-test kits are now more affordable than ever. The lowest price of the self-test kit in Malaysia is now RM5.80! Previously, the lowest price in the Malaysian market was RM6.60, which is sold at KK Supermart convenience store.
The government has been discussing lowering the ceiling price of the COVID-19 self-test kits. However, many stores are starting to sell the self-test kits at a much lower price than the ceiling price since the end of last month.
Now at only RM5.80, hopefully, the price will encourage everyone to take the test more frequently as a precaution.
