New Zealand Government has secured the delivery of enough rapid antigen tests (RATs) to help through a widespread Omicron outbreak in the coming months, Associate Health Minister Dr Ayesha Verrall announced today.

“Last week and over the weekend the Government has been in contact with a variety of rapid antigen test manufacturers. Those efforts have resulted in securing additional tests for delivery over the next two months which corresponds with a predicted rise in Omicron cases,” Dr Ayesha Verrall said.
