As part of the Government's strategy against the coronavirus, we are launching a 'mass testing' pilot scheme, where we are aiming to test an entire city for the coronavirus.
The scheme, which is the first of its kind in England, will see everyone living or working within Liverpool being offered Covid-19 testing, whether they have symptoms or not.
As part of this pilot, we will also use the new rapid turnaround tests.
I am the MP for Sherwood, not Liverpool, why am I posting about this? - Because if this scheme is successful, it has enormous potential nationally in our fight against the coronavirus.
This is a hugely ambitious and complicated project logistically, so I want to thank in advance all of the NHS staff, members of the emergency services and members of the armed forces who are supporting delivering this.
