The Spanish National Police have have seized 300,000 unauthorised Covid-19 antigen tests, which do not comply with the regulations set out by the Ministry of Health.
The police raided a warehouse in the southern Madrid municipality of Fuenlabrada after detecting the shipment. In less than 24 hours, the authorities had blocked the distribution of the goods and raided the premises.
Today, 29th December, officers raided the the warehouse where some 1 million antigen tests were discovered, of which 300,000 of them were found to be without the required paperwork or a lack of authorisation for distribution.

The authorities are filing a report to fine the four companies that are implicated.
The investigation continues.
