Testing in progress

Did the UK government hit its ‘100,000 tests per day’ target?

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.
