We're expanding the list of people eligible to book coronavirus testing through the online system. Now anyone over 65 or anyone who is currently leaving home to go to work will be eligible for testing if they have symptoms. This is in addition to opening up for key workers last week.
Any care home worker or resident will also be able to have a test, whether they have symptoms or not. We want to give people confidence in the system and the protection that's on offer.
We're now at a testing capacity of almost 75,000 a day and the Health Secretary is confident we can reach the target of being able to do 100,000 tests a day in the coming week.
