Disabled Victorians to have access to 20 free rapid antigen tests a day

Australian of the Year Dylan Alcott has applauded the “amazing” decision by the Victorian government to give people with a disability access to free rapid antigen tests.

From Saturday people on the Disability Support Pension or National Disability Insurance Scheme will be able to go to any testing center and get up to 20 rapid antigen tests per day.

“The reason is it’s not just RAT tests for the people with disability, you have got to do your carers, support workers, family members that come into your house potentially,” Mr Alcott said.

The Australian of the Year said he hopes to see this implemented in all states across Australia.
