In Austria there should be mass tests of the population before Christmas ?? similar to Slovakia.

This was announced by Federal Chancellor Sebastian Kurz (ÖVP) on Sunday on Austrian Broadcasting Corporation (ORF). The target group are initially teachers.

The mass tests should therefore start towards the end of the lockdown that was recently imposed until December 6th. As of Tuesday, the country will go down much harder than in Germany for almost three weeks due to a presumed threat of overloading the health system. Most shops and schools have to close again. Leaving private living space is only allowed for valid reasons, for example to go to work or to go shopping.
