Germans Can Get A Free Corona Rapid Test Every Week
Germans can get a free, fast corona test every week from next week. Chancellor Angela Merkel and the sixteen German states’ government leaders have agreed, insiders tell the DPA news agency.
The sale of kits for testing at home is also permitted. The government will try to tender them more quickly and on a large scale to cost less.
Meanwhile, leaders have been discussing extending lockdown measures for hours longer than planned.
These are expected to be extended until March 28, with a slight relaxation in social contacts. Stores may be able to open earlier in areas with relatively few infections.
