Coronavirus UK Update: No 10 insists UK on course for 100,000 tests a day

Downing Street has insisted that the Government was on course to meet the 100,000 daily Covid-19 testing target, with the new “mega-lab” near Manchester now in operation – carrying out 500 tests – to join the Milton Keynes facility.

The Glasgow laboratory is due to begin work at the end of this week.

The Prime Minister’s spokesman said a new lab, being set up by AstraZeneca, GSK and the University of Cambridge “aims to carry out 30,000 tests a day”.

Number 10 said that 505 social care workers were included in the testing programme over the weekend.
