SPD: Free corona rapid tests are to be offered again



Corona rapid tests are expected to be free again in view of the worsening infection situation in Germany.

Berlin – Corona rapid tests are expected to be free again in view of the worsening infection situation in Germany. It is correct, “that we want to reintroduce the free citizen tests,” said SPD leader Saskia Esken on Monday in Berlin. In addition, the 3G rule, according to which there is access to events only for vaccinated, convalescent and tested people, must be better controlled. “We are very lax there in Germany,” said Esken.

Co-party leader Norbert Walter-Borjans said that in case of doubt the state would have to take more rigid measures. It is not just a decision for yourself if you do not get vaccinated against corona. A high rate of unvaccinated people carries a higher risk of further mutations and vaccination breakthroughs. Walter-Borjans expressly did not want to join the chairman of the World Medical Association, Frank Ulrich Montgomery, who had spoken of a “tyranny of the unvaccinated”.

Esken said that with the planned processing of the Infection Protection Act, a new legal basis for corona measures will be laid and health protection will be placed on a strong basis. Walter-Borjans was also open to a possible vaccination light for nursing staff. (dpa)
