The Lower Austrian Red Cross has announced a free special test campaign on Corona for (tomorrow) Christmas Eve. According to the health organization, you can be examined at 22 selected locations from 8 a.m. to 11 a.m. Registration at www.testung.at is “absolutely necessary”. As with the mass tests, you must bring your identity card and e-card.
Above all, those people who celebrate Christmas with relatives of risk groups or who want to visit them in the nursing home should benefit from the investigation, said RK Land President Josef Schmoll. “This extraordinary campaign, in cooperation with Notruf Niederösterreich, ensures that many people can spend Christmas Eve with their relatives or dear friends based on their knowledge of their current state of health,” emphasized LHStv. Stephan Pernkopf (ÖVP) and State Health Councilor Ulrike Königsberger-Ludwig (SPÖ).
As part of the free examinations for the corona virus in Lower Austria, which has been running since Monday morning, 30,642 people have been tested so far. As of Tuesday, 5 p.m., 93 positive results were recorded according to the dashboard of Notruf Niederösterreich, which corresponded to a rate of 0.30 percent. Tests were carried out at the five locations in the state until 8 p.m.
The number of smears taken stalked the number of swabs on Tuesday afternoon. A total of 35,735 online registrations were registered.
In the current round, the proportion of positive results was slightly higher than in the comprehensive studies in Lower Austria in mid-December. On the test weekend at that time, the rate with 546,756 participants was 0.14 percent.
