Home-testing website to order kits runs out for FOURTH day in row

by Kerrie Springthorpe (2020-05-13)


10 months agoCoronavirus home testing kits ran out again in just over an hour after being made available again on the new Government website for the fourth day in a row today. More than ten million essential workers and their households are now eligible for Covid-19 checks as officials race to hit their 100,000-a-day tests target by Thursday. But as of 9.05am today home testing kits for England were listed as 'unavailable' on the gov.uk/coronavirus website - some 65 minutes after booking slots reopened.

It comes as people attending test centres over the weekend reported waiting times of up to three hours, and a care home operator in Yorkshire which had two residents die with coronavirus said it has been waiting ten days for testing kits to arrive. The latest testing statistics showed the Government still appears to be way off meeting its 100,000 daily target by the end of the month. The Prime Minister's official spokesman said that 29,058 tests had been carried out in England, Scotland and Wales in the 24 hours up to 9am on Saturday.

But he cautioned that the data does have the 'significant time lag' often seen today, not reflecting the change over the weekend or the boost from the new testing portal. Home testing kits were unavailable as of 9.05am today, although people could still book drive-through tests in England and Scotland as of noon - but not in Wales or Northern Ireland After the new website was launched last Friday morning, slots for both home-testing and drive-through centres in England have been used up within the first few hours.
