Access testing will likely be near impossible next weekend at Twente in Overijssel. to write RTV East. The largest providers of rapid tests are not allowed to open their doors this weekend, which means a significant drop in testing capacity.
The regional broadcaster writes that the root of the problem lies in a change that no longer pays test providers for the capacity they offer, but for each test taken. As a result, providers had to apply again to be allowed to take the test. These include Hestia and CovidTestNederland, Twente’s main test providers.
The latter company, which last week conducted 13,000 tests in Twente, has three of four sites in the region. “Now, on Friday, we still don’t have a promise to open and that means it won’t work this weekend. I can’t hire 50 people to gamble with the chance we won’t be able to test and my employees have to pay,” CovidTestNederland’s Mart Grünman told RTV. Ost. He anticipates problems, among other things, in the match that Twente Football Club plays at home. According to the announcer, it appears that the very small test capacity is primarily the problem for Twente.
