World News – UK – Tier 3 areas offered a quick escape through mass testing


. .

Tier 3 infection areas, including Greater Lincolnshire, are better able to adhere to more relaxed restrictions if they accept support for mass testing and health Secretary Matt Hancock said.

The program was originally tried out in Liverpool and Mr Hancock said it had stalled cases and allowed them to move into Tier 2 starting Wednesday.

He said the government had given Tier 3 areas « a faster way out of the toughest restrictions to help them come down the levels ». .

Councils can claim £ 14 for each test performed. He said the offer is available to all third tier areas and the government has already received « significant interest ». .

« By using tests that can change results in less than 30 minutes, we can identify and then isolate people with COVID, especially one in three people with COVID who don’t have these symptoms at all, but who do. » can still pass the infection on.

« If you have COVID without symptoms, you can still infect others, and of course that is a silent danger.

« You would not know that you are risking life around you. So if you are offered a test please take it – you could save a life. « . ”

Mr Hancock said he knew restrictions « have been really tough on people, » but added, « The good news is that they have worked. « .

He said cases were down 30% over the past week. . “This shows that the national restrictions have been successful.

« Through all of the national lockdown compliance measures and through everything the people have sacrificed, we have eased pressure on the NHS, reduced the number of coronavirus cases and brought this virus back under control. « . ”

Testing at universities began today and will have students, both with and without symptoms, voluntarily tested.

Health bosses in Lincolnshire previously said that a more targeted program targeting high-priority groups such as factory workers and nursing homes would be preferable.

Mr. Hancock also announced that the country has now ordered 357 million doses of seven different vaccines.

Before the briefing, community secretary (and Newark MP) Robert Jenrick announced new planning laws that would allow stores to « stay open late into the evening – possibly 24 hours in some locations ». .

It is because the government is trying to help people shop for Christmas and is encouraging people to get out.

Mr. Jenrick said he wanted to provide a « more comfortable and safer shopping experience » for everyone.

« Our priority right now is to open non-essential retail stores and support them as much as possible, » said Jenrick.
