Boris Johnson admits there's 'not enough coronavirus testing capacity'

Boris Johnson admitted there was not enough coronavirus testing capacity The Prime Minister told the Commons Liaison Committee: “We don’t have enough testing capacity now because, in an ideal world, I would like to test absolutely everybody that wants a test immediately.” He promised that there would be capacity for 500,000 tests a day by the end of October. But he urged people without symptoms to stay away from testing centres – although he acknowledged the reasons why they may want to find out if they had Covid-19. “What has happened is demand has massively accelerated just in the last couple of weeks,” he told MPs.
