Nationwide, the authorities are preparing for the mass tests. They want the federal government to reimburse the costs for the additional staff. In Upper Austria, however, they are looking for volunteers.
In cooperation with the Austrian team, the state of Upper Austria is looking for “voluntary heroes” who want to help with the corona mass tests from December 11th to 14th. Interested parties can register at www.teamoesterreich.at/toe/ or at www.treffpunkt-ehrenamt .at. When you are on duty you are insured through the Red Cross, informed Governor Thomas Stelzer and his deputy Christine Haberlander (both ÖVP) on Friday.
After the tests for the teachers on December 5th and 6th and the police on December 7th and 8th, around 1.4 million Upper Austrians can be tested from December 11th to 14th. Around 570 test lines are to be installed. 1700 employees are required per day for the test acceptance alone, the total requirement is likely to be 3500 people daily.
We are looking for doctors, paramedics and medical students for test acceptance, but also people for administrative and stewardship activities as well as people who take care of the supply and replenishment of material. Volunteers who have registered with Team Austria will be notified by SMS if help is still needed in their region. When registering, training, availability, etc. are queried so that the Red Cross can deploy people precisely.
In Klagenfurt, 100 test lanes are planned for the mass tests; a decision will be made on the locations in the coming days. It is assumed that around 60,000 to 70,000 people will be tested in Klagenfurt. A corresponding number of test locations are required for this. The crisis team met on Friday afternoon to clarify details, and planning should continue over the weekend.
Lower Austria has designated the weekend of December 12th and 13th for the corona mass tests. Governor Johanna Mikl-Leitner (ÖVP), her deputy Stephan Pernkopf (ÖVP), state health councilor Ulrike Königsberger-Ludwig (SPÖ), community association president Alfred Riedl and the president of the SP community representatives association Rupert Dworak decided on Friday.
The municipalities are the central processing platforms
together with the volunteer fire brigade, civil protection association, Rotem
The cross, the Samaritan League and the armed forces act. Overall, in
the communities will set up up to 800 test roads, said
Pernkopf. Here, too, up to 15,000 volunteers will be on duty.
Federal states charge costs
In terms of costs, in Upper Austria, as in Carinthia, Tyrol and Salzburg, the federal government has an obligation. Although advance payments will be made, they will act in the indirect federal administration so that the federal government will have to bear the costs (which cannot yet be estimated).
Health Minister Rudolf Anschober (Greens) promised on Friday that the costs for the mass tests will be “largely covered” by the federal government. This pays the tests and the basic costs, said Anschober at a press conference.
