Bremen (dpa / lni) - Bremen's Mayor Andreas Bovenschulte demands that employers offer their employees quick tests twice a week.

“We have to bring the rapid and self-tests to the public in order to break infection chains as early as possible.

Not only in schools and day-care centers, but also in private companies, "Bovenschulte told the world before the next federal-state conference on the corona pandemic on Wednesday.

"I will therefore work to ensure that employers have to offer their employees such a test twice a week," said the SPD politician.

That would "make a significant contribution to reducing the number of infections".
