Although we may not be facing lockdowns or tough restrictions any more, Covid still continues to affect people every day.With new strains cropping up all over the world, people should continue to practice good hygiene and keep a distance from others if they do fall unwell.Testing for Covid isn't as common anymore since lateral flow tests stopped being free, but if you think you have the virus and want to know for sure, taking a test is a good place to start.Consumer experts at Which?

have found out the cheapest places that you can buy them, as well as rounding up who is still eligible for free ones.They compared prices for boxes of five tests - you can buy them individually, but it's more cost-effective to buy them in bulk.And the cheapest place was found to be Morrison's, where you can get five Getein tests for £7.99 - working out at £1.60 each.Well Pharmacy came in second, offering a box of tests for £8.50, followed by five Step Ahead tests available at Lloyd's Pharmacy for £9.Sainsbury's, Superdrug and Boots also all sell a set of FlowFlex tests for less than £10, coming in at £9, £9.59 and £9.85 respectively.Depending on your circumstances, you may still be able to access free lateral flow tests.You're still eligible if you've got a health condition that means you can access Covid-19 treatments, if you're going into hospital, or if you work within the NHS or adult social care.

It can be difficult to know when to take a test, since there isn't any official government guidance about it anymore.You should always take into account your symptoms, who you've had contact with, and if you'll be seeing anyone vulnerable if you're thinking about taking a test.

Affordable device for fixing broken bones piloted in Gaza, Sri Lanka and Ukraine
Imperial researchers have developed a low-cost, easy-to-manufacture stabiliser for broken bones to help in regions where such devices are expensive or in short supply and people sometimes resort to homemade options.The stabiliser, known as an external fixator, holds broken bones in place with metal pins or screws attached to a surrounding metal frame.When soft tissue is severely damaged together with bone, external fixators are the first step in keeping fractures in legs and arms in place before an operation to definitively fix the bones can be carried out.However, their cost and low availability in many regions mean people resort to homemade or low-quality fixators that may lead to serious complications or improper healing.The Imperial external fixator is currently being tested in Gaza and Sri Lanka, and since the invasion of Ukraine, more than 500 fixators have been manufactured in Poland to help with the crisis.This fixator, details of which are published in Frontiers in Medical Technology, is low-cost and has a lightweight design that can be manufactured locally to international standards. The team developed the design and a toolkit to allow repeated precise manufacture of the fixator anywhere in the world, including in the least developed countries.In Sri Lanka, it is being tested for road traffic accidents, which account for around 70 percent of fractures in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs).
