Coronavirus: Testing will 'unlock puzzle', PM says – BBC News
Testing is the solution to “unlock the puzzle” of coronavirus, Prime Minister Boris Johnson has said.
Mr Johnson was speaking after it was revealed only 2,000 out of some half a million frontline NHS workers in England had been tested.
The PM said the government needed to “massively ramp up” testing so that NHS staff who were self-isolating unnecessarily could return to work.
It came as the UK had its biggest daily increase in deaths – 563.
As of 17:00 on Tuesday, the overall number of deaths from the virus in the UK was 2,352.
Mr Johnson, who is self-isolating in Downing Street after contracting the virus himself, has faced widespread criticism over his government’s testing strategy – with around 13,000 tests available each day against a target of 25,000.
