Testing in progress

On 1st May, Health Secretary Matt Hancock MP claimed:

The number of tests yesterday — on the last day of April — was 122,347.

The target was 100,000 COVID-19 tests per day. ‘Tests’ includes testing kits sent out to homes and satellite centres. Even under this measure, the government failed to hit this target in later days.

Test, test, test
