They just bought a packaging company. Perfect for packaging up millions of cr*p Chinese tests flown here cheaply. Branded as what….DHSC or some already recognised company? They will never go to the expense of manufacturing in UK when they can supply using Chinese costs.

As I said a few days ago, the Boohoo boys will push our tests hard. Why? Big mark up, no returns, cheap to post/pack, little warehouse space, existing customer base, easier than Saturday night rag trade frocks….and more profitable.
Medusa19 diagnostics PLC….ex Location Sciences Group PLC…….. another buy at 0.5 pence too?
Remember that the main players at Boohoo own the bulk of the shares in Location Sciences PLC. I think they will do a reverse takeover of this to give them a ready made PLC for the sale of diagnostics as business takes off with Avactas test sales when approved. New company rename? Medusa19life sciences PLC……..hence pre registered website???
“ Ministers were on Wednesday night urged to ditch pre-departure tests for double-jabbed holidaymakers amid fears the plans could be derailed by last-minute objections by health chiefs.
Grant Shapps, the Transport Secretary, and Rishi Sunak, the Chancellor, are thought to back the move as part of a new streamlined testing regime that would save a family of four up to £400 on an autumn holiday abroad.
Ministers also plan to replace expensive PCR tests, which travellers have to take on day two of their arrival in the UK, with cheaper lateral flow tests.
They are expected to finalise the plans at a Cabinet Covid-O committee meeting on Thursday or Friday to ensure the changes are in place in time for the autumn half-term break at the end of October.”
