A second round of mass COVID testing started in Vienna, on Friday, as seen in the city’s Wiener Stadthalle arena, transformed into a giant testing centre.

Vienna residents were seen getting free of charge COVID antigen tests inside the stadium facilities set up by military forces.

"The test runs from January 8 to January 17. We have 24 test lines here. In terms of capacity, we manage around 18,000 tests per day here, " said Stefan Koroknai, the test site’s military commander.

The mass testing campaign comes as the Austrian government is reportedly contemplating an ‘entry test’ scheme, where citizens will be required to show a negative test for entry to events and hospitality venues.

235,000 people were reportedly tested during Vienna’s first mass testing campaign in December.

About the author: Republican
As a Republican I am a conservative but have a little libertarian leanings. I about 80% a Trump supporter. I agree with him most of the time but as I am a person that thinks for himself I don't go along with him just because he is the President. I am not like liberals that think their candidates are Gods and never wrong.
