Govt must Test Trace and Isolate to keep people safe

Responding to the press conference from Number 10, Liberal Democrat Health Spokesperson Munira Wilson said:


"It is extremely sad that the UK now has the most deaths from Coronavirus in Europe. Each death is a tragedy, and heartbreaking for the family and friends who are grieving.

"It is also deeply concerning that the numbers of deaths in care homes continue to grow, and still weeks into the crisis many care home workers still do not have the PPE they need.

“More broadly on the Government response to the Coronavirus there will undoubtedly be questions about why the Government abandoned testing and tracing in March, and how Ministers will scale up to the level we need in the coming weeks.

“The Government must ensure as a priority that we do not leave lockdown until it is safe. We must have an at scale system for Test, Trace and Isolate to keep people safe.”
