Coronavirus testing numbers have now fallen three days in a row – Jonathan Ashworth

Jonathan Ashworth MP, Labour’s Shadow Health Secretary, responding to the fall in the number of coronavirus tests carried out, said:

“Far from delivering on the promise of 100,000 completed tests a day, testing numbers have now fallen three days in a row.

“A test, trace and isolate strategy is crucial to tackling this virus.

“Ministers needs to explain why the number of tests being completed daily is falling rather than rising.”
