This article and its headline were amended several hours after publication after the government’s chief medical officer, Chris Whitty, contradicted earlier evidence to a select committee from Prof Sharon Peacock, the director of the national infection service at Public Health England, about when the tests would be introduced.

I thought it was Vallance who was talking about a longer timescale before the kits are fully rolled out. I guess there is a lot changing from day to day at the moment depending on circumstances. It could change further particularly if those rolling out are getting ill themselves.

Home testing for the masses is one of the most important issues I reckon. It would put a lot of people's minds at rest for a start but those who have it can get treatment asap.
