Tests and share of positive tests

The number of positive tests may be higher than the number of newly confirmed cases due to some people being tested more than once.
Please note: There is no data available by canton or age group for the laboratory tests conducted before week 21.
PCR tests detect the SARS-⁠CoV-⁠2 virus’s genetic material whereas rapid antigen tests detect specific proteins. Both tests are done with a nose and throat swab.
