From Friday, citizens should pay three euros. From the point of view of the operators of 295 test centers across the district, there are still many unanswered questions. Will the new regulation be reversed?

Even if you might get a different impression when you look at the streets and airports: the pandemic is not over. On the contrary: the incidence values ​​​​in the Recklinghausen district are significantly higher than a year ago at this time. While the incidence in the district was still 5.9 on June 28, 2021, the value is 662.3 exactly one year later. The new regulation for the corona tests from July 1st is also met with criticism. And: The first operators are already giving up.

With testing falling, infections could go undetected

Eight test sites in the district have signed off
