According to the Federal Ministry of Health, there should initially continue to be free corona citizen tests until the end of May. The current Corona Test Ordinance, which also contains the citizen tests, expires on March 31st. However, they would continue to be paid, said a ministry spokesman on Monday when asked. A corresponding regulation is being prepared, which should apply until the end of May.
The Business Insider portal first reported: In view of the recent increase in the number of infections, the federal government wants to extend the deadline. The health and finance ministries had agreed to ensure that the federal government would finance the tests for another two months for the time being.
