Frontline workers still lack the testing they need, report shows

Responding to a report from the Royal College of Nursing (RCN) which has found more than 76% of Health and Social Care workers have not been offered a test for Covid-19, Liberal Democrat Health spokesperson Munira Wilson said:


"It is good news the Government has managed to significantly expand testing, but these reports are deeply concerning.

"Health and Social Care workers on the frontline of the fight against the Coronavirus have put their lives on the line to protect their communities. It is outrageous they have not received the PPE and testing they need.

"For the lockdown to end safely, the Government needs to have a system of test, trace and isolate in place for the entire population. The fact that not even frontline workers are being adequately tested shows how far the Government need to travel to safely end the lockdown."
