The number of corona new infections rises rapidly, but extensively has hardly been tested since the end of the free citizen tests. Now FDP Chief Christian Lindner is strong for reintroducing free Corona tests.

The decision of the Federal Government to end the free test was premature, Lindner said the "picture" newspaper. The FDP reaffirms its proposal to offer free tests until spring. This would be a building block to keep control. In addition to the FDP, the Left Party had also demanded a retention of the citizen tests several times.

The Federal Government had financed the free rapid tests expanded extensively from spring, in many places open test stations. By mid-September alone, the Bund had spent over 5.2 billion euros for the civic tests .

On 11 October, the financing of the tests had been set, many test stations have now closed. Exceptions continue to apply to all groups that can not be vaccinated for medical reasons and can prove this or for which no vaccine is available.

Pressure on Unvaccinated

The splendor behind the test end: Especially unvacaked should be animated so to be vaccinated against the coronavirus. Where in many places only vaccinated, genestras or freshly tested access to restaurants or events is granted, the now paid tests should set a sanctuary. At the same time, the Federal Government emphasized to abolish the tests from solidarity towards the taxpayers. Vaccinated should no longer have to pay for the tests of unvaccumed.

The problem: Even vaccines can continue to transmit the coronavirus. By eliminating the citizen tests, the test ordinance significantly increased, many infections remain unrecognized. The pandemism can be significantly monitored.
