Corona in Lower Saxony: State is working on test concept | – news


Status: 03.03.2021 4:46 p.m.

Lower Saxony wants to come out of lockdown step by step with a test concept. Government spokeswoman Anke Pörksen announced this on Wednesday.

According to Pörksen, every citizen in Lower Saxony should have the chance to be tested in their area. This should be done under supervision to ensure that everything runs correctly, as reported by NDR 1 Lower Saxony. The idea behind it: With a certificate of the negative result, citizens could then go to a restaurant, for example.

Tests ordered for schools – delivery date unclear

Meanwhile, the state government does not assume that self-tests for home tests are sufficient – after all, the test result is then not comprehensible and controllable. The tests, for example from drugstores, are useful to secure private meetings. Meanwhile, according to government spokeswoman Poerksen, the country has ordered five million of these do-it-yourself corona tests, which are to be used in schools, among other things. The smear is taken from the front of the nose. This is also feasible for children under supervision, said Poerksen. It is still unclear when the tests will be delivered.
