Britain to scale up coronavirus testing, Chief Medical Adviser says

LONDON (Reuters) - Britain will scale up testing for coronavirus, the government’s chief medical adviser Chris Whitty said on Monday after the World Health Organisation said testing was critical in the fight against the epidemic.

“We will continue to scale up the testing every single week from here on in,” he said. “It is important to realise the scale of UK testing, which has been substantial.”
