According to Malay Mail, earlier in October, Health Minister Khairy Jamaluddin said the government intends to revise the ceiling price and they are waiting for the current supply to finish before making an announcement. 

Nanta took to his Facebook page saying that a total of 2,560 business premises throughout the country have been authorised to sell COVID-19 rapid test kits as of October 28th. 

Besides pharmacies, the government also aims to increase the availability of screening kits by including supermarkets, convenience stores and petrol stations in stages. The minister said expanding the sale of the kits to more premises will encourage competition and it will help to bring the prices down.
