Only professionals are allowed to push sticks on their noses

From 1 August, stricter norms will apply to testing centers and pharmacies for COVID 19 tests in the canton of Zurich. Only employees with basic medical training are allowed to perform rapid antigen tests and PCR tests, reports “NZZ am Sonntag”. This also includes medical students and pharmaceutical assistants. Till now common people have also been allowed to take nasal swabs.

The Zurich health directorate justifies this measure with the fact that “shortcomings were found in the implementation of the COVID 19 tests in various areas, such as the safety of the staff and the people tested,” the directorate told “NZZ am Sonntag”.
