Quebec will once again receive rapid screening tests, offered to the population as of Tuesday. The president of the Quebec Association of Owner Pharmacists, Benoît Morin, however calls out: “To be truly transparent with you, for a few days, it will be difficult. “It is because the next arrival will certainly not be enough to meet the strong demand.

Benoît Morin explains that before the Holidays, pharmacies had received approximately 400 boxes each over a period of a week and a half.

However, they will receive, on average, 300 boxes per week for the next few weeks, he said.
