It's people with symptoms who are on the list who can be tested

Who knows. It was never supposed to be an effective strategy it was just to score a political point.

The people we should be testing are:

1) people with symptoms
2) contacts of people with symptoms who themselves develop symptoms

We need to chase this fucker down.

Whatever testing and contact tracing regime we use it's all just 'nice-to-know' information unless we also put in place effective isolation and quarantine measures.

It's people who are key workers that can order a.test online. Like a care home and then people who they live with. I think they included all the tests that were posted that day...
My mil has ordered a test for her and fil as she works in a care home and some residents have already died and tested positive for it. They get the test delivered do it and in think it is picked up by a courier.
