Coronavirus testing to include all Essential workers in the UK

Matt Hancock, Britain’s health minister expands the testing criteria and includes all essential workers in the UK and their households for testing. The new testing regime for the coronavirus with a target of testing 100,000 people per day by the end of April appears to be overambitious and difficult to meet, but Hancock is determined to achieve it. Even though the testing capacity is increased, only a few people are showing up for the tests.  The government had faced criticism for not making mass availability of the tests which would help determine the positive cases quickly.
