Boris Johnson was forced to change his strategy regarding the government’s coronavirus screening regime after criticizing the slowness of testing of front line NHS staff.
Private laboratories are currently being developed to carry out tests where they were previously carried out through a centralized process.
The Prime Minister accepted last night that mass testing was the way out of the crisis and said in a tweet that “he would eventually unlock the coronavirus puzzle”.
Hospitals revealed yesterday how they had to beg to test veterinary supplies and brew their own chemicals to check on staff due to shortages.
According to the group of hospitals, the NHS tests could be multiplied by eight to reach 100,000 per day if these shortages were resolved.
