Test de coronavirusBoris Johnson has promised to increase Covid-19 testing capacity in the UK to 500,000 tests per day by the end of October in order to keep any second potential waves under control this winter.

The British Prime Minister has warned that the increase in the number of people with coronavirus-like symptoms due to seasonal illnesses could make it more difficult to track the virus in the coldest months.

Speaking at a press conference in Downing Street, Johnson said the testing capacity is currently 200,000 per day.

The Prime Minister said: “As winter approaches, we will have to go further, in particular because many people will develop Covid-like symptoms following seasonal illnesses and will therefore require a test.

“So we’re going to increase testing capacity to at least 500,000 antigen tests per day and 3.5 million antigen tests per week by the end of October.” ”
