Ministerial incompetence leads to restricted testing – Jonathan Ashworth

Jonathan Ashworth, Shadow Health and Social Care Secretary, responding to reports that plans are underway to prioritise coronavirus tests, said:

“They promised us a world beating system but because of ministerial incompetence they are now forced to restrict testing. When testing breaks down we lose our ability to control the virus. It’s now urgent ministers fix testing.”
