Unvaccinated people who want to be tested for corona without symptoms have to pay since Monday.

The citizens of Munich have divided opinions on this.

Munich - If you want to eat, go to the cinema or the zoo and have not yet been vaccinated or recovered, you have to pay for the necessary rapid test yourself since Monday.

And that can get really expensive!

The price for a rapid antigen test is usually between ten and 20 euros.

Of course, there are also exceptions to the obligation.

People who cannot be vaccinated for medical reasons do not have to pay anything.

Transitional regulations also apply to children and adolescents (up to December 31), students (up to November 30), pregnant women (up to December 10), visitors and employees of nursing homes and people who have corona symptoms or are currently in quarantine.

Munich: Mixed opinions on chargeable corona tests

We wanted to know from the people of Munich whether they understand the tests, which are now subject to a charge - and yesterday we asked around at a test station on Marienplatz.

“I think it's right that the tests now cost.

Everyone had the chance to get vaccinated.

The general public should no longer have to pay for the objectors, even if my son disagrees.

At the same time, the state should reach out to people much more in order to convince them.

I miss spontaneous vaccination offers in Germany, on the street, in front of bars, wherever there are people. "

Munich: Corona tests now cost - "Don't find it right"

“I have been vaccinated once and am still waiting for my second injection.

That's why I have to get tested every day for university.

I don't have to pay myself yet, but the time it takes is annoying.

Let people decide for themselves, it's their body after all.

So people are more or less forced.

Instead, there should be incentives.

Why no bonuses? ”

Christopher Bennett (22), student from Munich

“Although I have been vaccinated twice myself, I don't think it's right that the tests now cost something.

People are urged to vaccinate, but the decision should be left to everyone.

This vaccination requirement through the back door is at the expense of poorer people.

You have to convince people, but you shouldn't force them. ”

Gina Bihler (41) from Munich
