Germany to boost COVID-19 testing - Spahn

Germany’s Health Minister Jens Spahn said on Monday that new COVID-19 measures with the focus on preventive testing will be set amid fears of a potential rise in infections in the coming fall and winter season.

"It is important that we continue to protect particularly affected risk groups and sharpen the concepts for this in everyday life," Spahn said and emphasized that preventative testing is the key to have the pandemic under control, especially among the elderly population living in nursing homes.

Last week, Germany reported an increase of over 2,000 cases for two consecutive days.
