Coronavirus tests free for everyone
The government says that from now on all coronavirus tests will be free for everyone. The aim is to encourage more testing for Covid-19.
The cost will be nearly CHF 300m.
The interior minister, Alain Berset, says cost must not be a hurdle.
The tests can now detect antibodies to determine if someone has had Covid-19 previously. The aim is to have 15,000 people tested every day.
