    Coronavirus: UK sent 50,000 Covid-19 samples to US for testing - BBC News

    The government has admitted sending about 50,000 coronavirus tests to the US last week for processing after "operational issues" in UK labs.

    The Department of Health said sending swabs abroad are among the contingencies to deal with "teething problems".

    The samples were airlifted to the US in chartered flights from Stansted Airport, the Sunday Telegraph said.

    They weren't going to get the 100k tests without fiddling things like Nero when Rome burned, now were they.

    I'd be surprised if the bozo could find his arse with both hands.

    He went to Eaton therefore he had juniors to do that for him. (I would be banned if I used the correct Eaton word)

    You should be banned for not knowing how to spell "Eton".

    Anyway the problem is not HMG or Boris but PHE. They won't allow uncredited labs to do the testing, meaning a lot of private UK-based ones can't help, so samples have to go to someone's medical labs.

    Brexit is having a wee in the middle of the room at a house party because nobody is talking to you, and then complaining about the smell.
