    Default More good news

    Just in case any of you gloomsters are feeling smug, Michael Gove has confirmed that the UK will meet its 10,000 tests per day by the end of April target. So put that in yer pipe and smoke it.

    My better half works in the Lighthouse lab in Cheshire.

    They have been working up for the last 7-10 days, running a single shift.
    From next week they move to a 4 shift 24x7 rotation, 42,000 tests per week capacity.

    Exactly. Is he getting the figures from Priti Patel?

    11th March:
    NHS ramps up coronavirus testing by 500% so 10,000 patients can be tested daily - ITV News

    2nd April:
    Health Secretary sets out plan to carry out 100,000 coronavirus tests a day - GOV.UK
    I'm perfect, in a very specific and limited way.

    How is it good news? With more tests we will have more confirmed cases, let's stop testing to drive statistics down.

    It's good news that the government is going to meet one of its targets.

    Admittedly it's a target that they then said they would meet tenfold, but hey, let's forget their promises.
