Boasts of Johnson and Hancock exposed (yet again) by chaos revealed in leaked ‘official sensitive’ report
A leaked ‘official, sensitive’ report has revealed that the Tories’ coronavirus testing system is in complete chaos:
- tens of thousands of completed tests binned without being analysed
- a backlog of 185,000 tests – many of which will never be checked
- tests sent to Italy and Germany for analysis
So complete is this chaos that, while Johnson and Hancock have boasted of ‘capacity’ of 375,000 tests a day, in reality only an average of 62,000 a day are being analysed, while tens of thousands are being binned because they are too old or have been damaged in storage or transport.
In spite of the abysmal lack of testing, the number of positive tests has rocketed exponentially – meaning that the real level of coronvirus spread among the population is almost certainly several times higher than the 3,500 a day being currently reported.
And even the 3,500 a day is the highest level since mid-July. The second wave is well and truly here – and the Tories are hiding it.
