Justin Madders responds to reports the Government has changed the way it counts Covid-19 tests
Justin Madders MP, Labour’s Shadow Health Minister, responding to reports that the Government has changed the way it counts Covid-19 tests to meet its 100,000 tests target, said:
“We want the Government’s test, isolate and trace strategy to succeed and welcomed expanding who was eligible to get a test, but counting a test put in the post is not the same as a conducted test and getting results.
“Ministers should focus on making sure these tests are administered effectively rather than moving the goalposts to hit their own arbitrary target.
“Government should urgently clarify its position at tonight’s press conference.”
