There are long queues to get tested for covid-19 in Skåne. There are no more appointments for the whole week. Politicians now want to try out new approaches.
30,000 people in Skåne are tested on average every week for covid-19. It’s a figure that is constantly increasing. This has made it difficult for many residents to book a test via 1177.se. The appointments have been booked quickly. Now there are no more appointments for self-testing.
–The plan is, therefore, to increase the number of places you can drive-through and get tested. There will be ten new drive-through sites, but the locations have not been determined yet, says Johan Vestergren from Region Skåne's press service.
– When it’s all in place, we should be able to test 5,000 more people every week, he says.
