Supermarket chain to start selling coronavirus quick self-tests

The supermarket chain ‘ALDI’ announced that the sales of COVID-19 antigen quick self-tests will start in its stores across Germany on Saturday.

“We will be offering for sale in all stores of “Aldi South” and “Aldi North” starting Saturday, 6th of March coronavirus self-tests. It is an antigen test that is approved for personal use at home,” said

the company’s press officer Nastaran Amirhaji, speaking in Mulheim an der Ruhr.

The tests are produced in Germany, with each package priced at 24,99 Euro (29 USD) containing five.

“We will limit the sale, which means the customer will be able to buy only one package. We’re doing this because, first of all, we want as many customers as possible to benefit from this offer, as there are five tests per package anyway,” Amirhaji explained.
