Copia-di-Black-Friday-Saldi-Abbigliamento-Instagram-PostA compromise will be found to settle concerns expressed by pharmacists on the price capping for surgical masks that need to be worn in shops and public transport, Prime Minister Robert Abela said today.

Pharmacists said they will not be selling masks until the government clarifies its position after a 95 cents capping was imposed per surgical mask and €5 for visors.

Speaking to the media, Abela said he understood the position of pharmacists who are saying that they bought their stock at higher prices, but he was sure that a solution will be found.

Abela said that he felt that the 95-cent price cap is a reasonable one, but noted that he understands the circumstances in this case and is open to discussions so that a compromise can be reached.

“I understand the circumstances we are in, and where we can help, we will help – you will see it in other measures; we have helped and we will keep helping”, Abela said.
