For the safety of all residents: COVID-19 test center
As part of the development and increasing use of certified SARS-CoV-2 rapid tests in the spring of 2021, the city of Hamburg had public test centers, where residents could be tested free of charge, set up at multiple locations. In cooperation with the Order of St. John, HAKOH Health & Care has been providing support to the administrators of the test center at Wandsbek Markt from day one. In addition to having taken on complete responsibility for the organization of the setup, the HAKOH team also accepted responsibility for the procurement and coordination of the personnel, as well as for the provision of protective equipment in the form of medical masks, protective gowns, nitrile gloves and safety glasses.
