Roll-out of two new rapid coronavirus tests

04/08/2020

Two new tests – both able to detect the virus in just 90 minutes – will be made available to NHS hospitals, care homes and labs.

The two tests will be able to detect both COVID-19 and other winter viruses such as flu and respiratory syncytial virus (RSV). The tests do not require a trained health professional to operate them, meaning they can be rolled out in more non-clinical settings.
