Default The price of masks.

Pharmacies cannot charge more than 96 cents for masks, even though they paid over 2euros for them.
watching the news yesterday, there was a screenshot showing that the wholesale price was 2.15 for 10.
OK I agree that abusive prices are wrong, but so is forcing businesses to lose money.
A bad move in my opinion.

The price is set at 96 cents for one mask not ten.

I made a boob, I meant to write the price on the screenshot for 10 was 21.50.
So they will lose 11.90euros for 10 masks.

I ordered one from my pharmacy 10 days ago at a price of €3.50. They do say that this is a mask with a ventilator so maybe that is why the price is high.

The cheap masks including those with a side filter are not up to much, more to stop you coughing our airborne droplets but I suppose they will satisfy any rules in place. I'm sure they will be compulsary in the UK before long.

Here in the UK my daughter who's a nurse has had virus but thankfully it was mild, husband and children not infected or certainly showing no symptoms so she's now back working on the ward.

I hope your all keeping safe in Spain and I'll raise a glass to you all before dinner.

Default Re: The price of masks.

I bought the set limit of 5 cheapest ones at 96 cents each, He had one at just under 6 euro. If all these parents with children do not adhere to the rules we will all be shut in again. I fully understand the difficulty of children not being allowed out but the love of love please be sensible ! I want to go home and not in an ashes urn.

I was charged €3 for a box of 100 - what the hell did I buy??😂

to be fair, they’re one size only (s/m?) I have quite large hands and they’re bit of a fit for me.

but they do the job, only torn them twice whilst putting them on 🤷🏻‍♂️

People are discussing masks not gloves.

Default Re: The price of masks.

I have been informed i can pick up free masks at the local pharmacy,on production of my sip card.Why you ask,because i am classed as vulnerable and cronica, whether i get them or use them i am undecided yet.My main defence to date is not to leave the villa at all.

Everyone was issued them in our village regardless of status (well you needed to be on the padron)
