Ministers must get a grip of testing fiasco – Jonathan Ashworth

Jonathan Ashworth MP, Labour’s Shadow Health Secretary, following the Prime Minister’s comments in the House of Commons on testing, said:

“When testing breaks down, we lose control of the virus and risk further national restrictions. This is an absurd comment from the Prime Minister and suggests he doesn’t even understand the basics.

“The Prime Minister used to say that a world beating system would defend us, but now claims that testing and tracing failures have little or nothing to do with the resurgence of Covid-19.

“Ministers must a get a grip of the ongoing testing fiasco.”
