Australia has insisted on using polymerase chain reaction (PCR) tests to find people positive for the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19). With PCR tests costing as high as 85 Australian dollars per person, Canberra has spent more than AU$1 billion (US$738 million) for this alone. While rapid antigen tests are much cheaper and display results faster, the Australian government has continued to prohibit their use in the country.

PCR tests that require laboratory processing were the only COVID-19 tests available to the general public. However, Daily Mail Australia said that PCR tests cost Australian taxpayers between AU$42.50 (US$31) and AU$85 (US$62). On the other hand, other countries worldwide adopted rapid antigen tests that cost as low as AU$15 (US$11) and produce results in just minutes.
