COVID-19 UK: Test shortage forcing Britons to miss work and school


People with coronavirus symptoms are still being forced to travel miles to get tested.

In Bolton, where a local lockdown is in place, only 20 people are being tested per day – despite the capacity to test 200.

Children are being kept out of school and workers are unable to go to the office as they wait for tests to become available.
