The everyday restrictions in order to cope with the Corona pandemic will possibly be relaxed in the future, thanks to the offer of two free rapid tests per week. This was announced by the Federal Ministry of Health. A discussion paper by the department suggests that the tests be carried out by qualified personnel in practices and test centers, among other places. The results of the rapid tests are to be presented to the authorities after entry from risk areas.
The Greens had made a similar proposal. The chairman of the Health Committee in the Bundestag, Rüddel, was hopeful with regard to easing, due to the test results through rapid tests.
