From today, the 7th of April, Pingo Doce has started selling Covid-19 Antigen self-tests in its Bem Estar outlets which are located inside six of its stores. The self-tests cost €4.99 each, and are easy to use, while the results take anything between 15 -30 minutes to arrive.
Until last week these tests were only available for use by health professionals. However, after the publication of Ordinance No. 56 in Diário da República, they are now allowed to be sold to the general public.
Over 10,000 tests were sold in Portugal during the first two days of its release.
