Government announce expansion of care home Covid-19 testing in Englands

Health Secretary Matt Hancock announced an extension of the coronavirus testing regime in English care homes. At the Downing Street press conference, he said adult care homes would now be included in the plan after claiming success in his target of getting staff and residents in elderly care settings a test by early June. He said: “We’ve now sent over a million test kits to almost 9,000 elderly care homes and the care homes themselves asked that they have the flexibility to do the test when it works for them.
