On 5 October it was announced that it will be possible to undergo tests with a (rapid) antigen swab at private centers authorized by the Lazio Region, but do they really work? According to what the user Giulio Lowerome tells us, they don’t work at all in Rome. Having accused some symptoms such as dry cough and chills, he in fact felt the need to have a tampon, but since he also caught a cold and it could be a banal cooling, he does not want to “steal” a tampon from the state and goes to private centers.
Well, he consulted about twenty of them in Rome and failed to get the chance to swab shortly. The Altamedica center tells him that he can only book online, but when he goes to the booking page he finds that it is non-existent. The Bios Sangiovanni center has the first place available on October 26, other centers such as Concordia Hospital, Dolomiti Srl, Quisisana Eurosanità reply that they have not yet started to make them, that they are not operational or that I do not own them. Others, like Villa Benedetta, are postponed for about ten days. The Tiburtino Clinical Analysis Laboratory tells him to call back after 20 October, the Karol Wojtyla Hospital instead says it will start next week.
Obviously, there is no lack of centers that do not respond, are always busy or with which the line falls. And there are also those who hang up the phone in his face … In general, the user who tried to swab at a private center only remedied many inaccurate answers and many postponements.
