According to Health Senator Ulrike Gote (Greens), there is still some room for improvement in the number of possible PCR tests in Berlin.

Berlin – “We cannot expand endlessly, not even through commercial providers, because technology and qualified personnel show the laboratory capacities their limits,” Gote told the daily newspaper “taz” (Monday). When Berlin universities were asked whether students were interested in a part-time job in the laboratory for test evaluation, more than 100 interested people reported within two days. “With 45 additional full-time employees, the laboratories in Berlin can increase their capacities from the current 100,000 PCR tests per week by 28,000. But then not much more is possible, »said Gote. (dpa)
