Volkswagen AG will start offering weekly rapid COVID-19 tests to its employees in Germany, according to Gunnar Kilian, the company's member of the Board of Management HR and Truck & Bus.

In a LinkedIn post on Wednesday, Kilian expressed the belief that the rapid tests, along with discipline and abiding by current rules, will help Germany gradually relax the lockdown imposed amid the pandemic.

Earlier today, German Chancellor Angela Merkel urged people to respect current social distancing measures and other rules, but warned she expects the next three or four months to be challenging when it comes to fighting the coronavirus.
