This 1 April 2020 video from the USA says about itself:
4,000 price-gouging complaints have been filed in Texas during COVID-19 emergency
Price-gouging complaints continue to pour into the Texas Attorney General’s Office during the worldwide coronavirus emergency.
Translated from Dutch NOS radio today:
MSF (Doctors Without Borders) finds the price of a new coronavirus test developed by a US American corporation unacceptable. Cepheid charges $ 20 per test in developing countries. There are countries where people live on less than $ 2 a day, the aid organization emphasizes.
MSF has calculated that the test can be marketed for $ 5.
“While countries are struggling with the coronavirus crisis, it is essential to have tests that can make quick diagnoses,” said a spokesperson. “So many lives could be saved if companies like Cepheid would make their tests available quickly and affordably in all countries.”
