NHS suspends operations while government admits Covid test poses “tremendous challenge” – BBC News




More warnings have been received about serious problems with the coronavirus testing system. Higher NHS figures say operations are being suspended due to a lack of evidence. Meanwhile, some executives are complaining that members have to self-isolate staff because they can’t do tests that can show they don’t have a virus. Matt Hancock, England’s health secretary, has admitted that the system faces a “tremendous challenge”, which has taken a few weeks to sort through. He said the tests should be facilitated as demand has risen significantly, putting people in health and care homes as soon as possible. Prime Minister Boris Johnson promised that by June there would be a “world beating” test and tracing system. Since then there has been a repeated shortage of people with hundreds of miles recommended for some tests.
