On Monday, Vienna-based Lifebrain, a central laboratory, notified 1,200 employees to resign.
The company announced in a statement. The company is analyzing samples as part of Vienna’s Corona PCR testing program “Everything Gargles,” which is paid for by the federal government with taxpayers’ money. As the future of the tests is open, the company is notifying employees of their dismissal “in the sense of an early warning system,” it said.
PCR test: Can an expired gargle test still be used?
Lifebrain examines Vienna samples at the former Otto Wagner Hospital site. “Alles gurgelt” was initiated by the city and the Chamber of Commerce in cooperation with the Rewe Group. The step was “extremely difficult,” Lifebrain managing director Michael Havel emphasized. However, precautionary measures had to be taken, as the federal government could not yet give any perspectives on the strategy planned for the next months two weeks before the possible end of the free trial programs, which was announced for the end of March, the company boss criticized.
