“We'd better test too much than not enough. Nevertheless, it is important that we proceed systematically, ”he told the“ Rheinische Post ”.
Reinhardt referred to the limited capacities: "We need the test capacities so that sufficient tests are available for suspected cases, risk groups and hospital patients and above all a quick test evaluation is possible." In addition, employees in patient care should be tested on a voluntary basis at regular and short intervals. The physician president added: "Mass tests for everyone would certainly provide interesting scientific knowledge, but as long as the capacities are limited, I think rapid and targeted tests of clearly defined population groups make more sense."
