Pharmacists to give COVID tests out of hours, when closed

FOFI says will take chance to make services more efficient

(ANSA) - ROME, OCT 20 - Italian pharmacists are to give COVID-19 tests out of hours and on days when their pharmacies are closed to meet a surge in demand caused by mandatory workplace health certificates, COVID Commissioner Francesco Figliuolo told Italian regions Wednesday.
    He told the regional governments to help pharmacies "to continue to carry out the rapid antigenic swabs beyond opening hours and on days of closure".
    The federation of Italian pharmacists guilds (FOFI) said the move was made on its recommendation.
    FOFI said pharmacists "will succeed in exploiting this opportunity to make the service even more effective and efficient". (ANSA).
