Austria Center Vienna to trial 15-minute test for large-scale events with help of 3,000 students

Three thousand students from the Vienna University of Economics and Business will be tested for coronavirus as part of a pilot project to see if rapid testing at the Austria Center Vienna is possible.

The idea is to take a swab just before an event starts and get the results back within 15 minutes. Researchers say that if the testing proves successful it will be a venue first.
