In Tyrol there are apparently problems with the procurement of PCR gargle self-tests. The company, which was ranked first in the list of the Federal Procurement Company, announced that it “does not see itself in a position to implement it,” said the country. They are “currently working flat out on alternatives that can be implemented as soon as possible”.
Greens club chairman Gebi Mair had previously pointed out the problem on Twitter. When asked by a user as to when one could expect PCR gargle tests for home use, he replied: “The company that won the tender is currently not in a position to implement the bid”. Alternatives are being worked on, said the ruling party’s club chairman.
The state of Tyrol had announced that it would offer PCR gargle self-tests at around 200 locations by the end of November. They should be able to be picked up and returned in supermarkets, for example. Recently there had been reports and complaints that the capacities in the PCR test lanes were insufficient. (APA / Red)
