WASHINGTON : Amazon.com said it will cut the cost of its direct-to-consumer COVID-19 PCR Test Collection kit to US$36.99, a US$3 price reduction.

The U.S. retailer said the price cut reflects its costs for selling the FDA-approved kit and is the result of a public-private partnership with the Biden administration.

The White House said Thursday that Amazon, Walmart, and Kroger will sell at home rapid COVID-19 tests at-cost for the next three months.
