Probably sold out so quickly as people are buying them to re-sell at a later date - at a higher price.

People are limited to 1 box per month. The lower priced tests have all sold out in local shops

It's still surprisingly easy to find kits in the 50-70 baht range around Bangkok, but I haven't seen anything being sold as cheaply as these GPO kits.

 

If they really wanted wide distribution, though, they would sell them individually or in the usual packs of 2-5 pieces that every other brand has, not boxes of 20 - those seem to be specifically engineered to be convenient to resellers.

This is a little misleading IMO , why ? Because the sell out is due to traders buying them in large numbers and then to be sold off individually at 3 or 4 times the original price ( a minimal markup )

We can't get hold of them down here in Oz either. Our bunch of clown's that call them self a government, are telling us to get out and get rat test and test your self and family 3 times a week but at Aud $15.00 a hit not a problem, If the UK but the & USA can hand them out for free why can't they heel we are in the top 5 highest paying taxes in the world. anybody that would want to come to live or holiday  need to be in the million's .
