BARCELONA, 13 Nov. (EUROPA PRESS) –
The Chamber of Barcelona will enable two points to carry out rapid tests in Barcelona and Granollers (Barcelona) with the aim of promoting the use of antigen tests as a way to control the expansion of Covid-19, as reported this Friday in a statement.
One of the points will be installed in the Can Muntanyola business service center in Granollers and the other in La Llotja de Mar, the Chamber’s corporate headquarters.
The agency has defended that “it is necessary to intensify the detection of positives and the tracing of their contacts and allocate more resources”, which, with this measure, would allow to reactivate the economy, decongest hospitals and save lives.
“It is urgent that the Government establish a protocol to carry out tests with rapid tests on the entire possible population, following the example of countries like Slovakia, and allocate all available resources to make it possible, enabling points such as pharmacies to carry out this type of tests “, the Chamber demanded.
The Barcelona chamber has defended rapid tests as “a good tool to control the evolution of the pandemic in a more agile way”, since they open the possibility, for example, to be applied in a massive way and to carry out rapid screening at a more affordable private cost for the company, both at the price level and the level of waiting time for results.
