The influx to the mass tests in Vienna is also rather low on Sunday. 19,550 people (as of Sunday morning) have registered for a test appointment at one of the three locations for the mass tests, as the city hall informed the APA at noon. To illustrate: the daily capacity is designed for 150,000 tests. According to the preliminary interim results, 79 positive cases – verified by PCR tests – were found on the first two days of testing.

The results in detail: On Friday a total of 107 PCR tests were also performed in the course of the mass tests. This follows a positive result in the rapid test. Of these, 39 gave a positive and 68 a negative result, announced a spokesman for Health City Councilor Peter Hacker (SPÖ). First results are already available for yesterday’s Saturday: 40 of 112 tests are positive, 50 negative. 22 samples are still in the evaluation, here still no result is present.

Fully booked in der Stadthalle
According to the latest preliminary figures from the morning, 19,550 people have registered for a test date at one of the three locations for the mass tests this Sunday. There are big differences in the capacity utilization – the Stadthalle is fully booked again, whereas there is an extremely high free capacity especially at the Messe Wien.

For this reason, the city has decided to relax the access rules for testing on Saturday evening. From now on, people who have fixed a test date can bring their family members to the test, even though they are not personally registered. This is possible at the trade fair location.

No change of registration necessary
It is also important to know that if someone decides to take advantage of the offer, but is registered at a different location, this is not a problem, was insured. One could go to the fair without re-registration or announcement.

The difference to before is: Up to now, it was necessary for each individual who wanted to participate in the mass tests to fix a personal appointment for one of the three available locations Stadthalle, Messe Wien or Marx-Halle via an online registration platform.

The army spokesman described the current situation at the test stations as “calm and orderly”. He also called for participation: “The population is welcome to come to us. An appointment – even for today – was possible at any time.
