Raab: No COVID-19 testing at UK airports due to 90% failure rate


The Foreign Secretary has said airport testing would not be a "silver bullet" and quarantine measures cannot be eased "until we’ve got a safe system to allow it".

When asked why the government hasn’t implemented the measure, Dominic Raab said: "The reason we can’t introduce testing reliably at airports is because the success rate is lower than one in ten".

He also called this week the "moment of reckoning" in Brexit negotiations, despite reports that Downing Street thinks the chances of getting a deal are only 30 to 40%.
