Manx government to scrap free PCR tests and home test kits

Most free Covid testing will be scrapped on the Isle of Man as part of a move to an "endemic approach" to the virus, the government has said.

If a player spins เทคนิค การ เล่นสล็อต ให้ได้ โบนัส pantip and loses all of their stakes, it is not a good idea to roll over additional funds immediately to win, as rollover has the potential to cause players to lose their capital more quickly.

From Monday only vulnerable people, health workers, and those due to have hospital treatment will be able to get free lateral flow tests (LFT).

Visitors to hospitals, care homes and the Isle of Man Prison will no longer be asked to take the tests in advance.

Manx Care is also set to limit who it offers PCR tests to from 31 August.

The health care provider said those tests will only be available to patients who need a result before being admitted for treatment in the UK, or those who are receiving rheumatology treatment.

About 169,000 PCR tests have been performed since April 2020, which equates to about two tests per person on the Isle of Man.

Virus management

The move to scrap universal free tests comes as the island's population has "much stronger protection against Covid than at any other point in the pandemic", a government spokeswoman said.

This is due to vaccines, natural immunity, antiviral drugs and a better understanding of how to manage the virus, with further booster jabs to be offered from September, she added.

LFTs will be given directly to health and social care workers and patients due to undergo a hospital procedure, while those classed as "extremely clinically vulnerable" will be able to continue to order the kits online.
