“Gargle boxes”: gargle test possible in future in test container

In the future, “alles gurgelt” tests can also be carried out in “gargle boxes”. Ten boxes will be available in Vienna.

“Alles gurgelt” is now also available in test containers: After PCR tests have been available at home via smartphone and video function in Vienna for some time, this is now also possible in “gargle boxes”. Starting tomorrow, Viennese residents will be able to perform a test directly on site. All that is required is registration, which can be done by phone or online. A total of ten boxes will be available throughout the city.

Gargling takes place directly in “gargle boxes
Gargling is carried out under supervision directly in the container. The result is available after 24 hours and can be collected directly from the box or sent by e-mail. The gargle boxes complement the ten test lanes and the “Schnupfen-Checkboxen” for people with flu symptoms, which are also still available. A total of around 200 tests per day can be carried out in the new PCR containers. These are supervised by employees of the Workers’ Samaritan Association.

In Vienna, 500,000 PCR gargle tests are available for catering staff this week. They can be ordered online by pub operators according to the “click and collect” principle and then collected from Messe Wien.
