Austria Center Vienna conducts Covid-19 testing pilot project: rapid tests can significantly improve the safety at events
On 16 and 17 September the Austria Center Vienna conducted around 2,000 rapid tests in a pilot project in partnership with the Vienna University of Economics and Business, Arbeiter-Samariter-Bund and medical products wholesaler Alpstar. The resulting interest from event organisers, hotels, hospitals, national and international business and politicians was overwhelming. Across all industries there are high hopes for the new antigen tests. The Austria Center Vienna will make the key insights from the pilot project publicly available, in the interests of creating a repository of information which can be used as a foundation for future events.
