Take action for the next step in combating the coronavirus
What we want
We want security and freedom for people, to safeguard their physical, psychological and economic wellbeing. We want to be able to live with the new coronavirus.
Health and the economy seem currently in conflict with each other. This conflict can be resolved, if there is widespread, regular testing of people. This does not happen at present, because the capacity to do this is not sufficient.
This is why we are campaigning for systematic random testing across the board, so that
- individuals and the economy can live and function with COVID-19
- insight can be gained in the effectiveness of current and future policy measures
We need your help
to convince public opinion, the media and policy makers that such a programme is crucial to simultaneously meet public health requirements and allow normal economic and social activity, as long as the COVID-19 pandemic has not been conquered.
