UK testing every person in Liverpool for virus | TheHill

The British government announced on Tuesday that everyone in Liverpool will be tested for the novel coronavirus as part of a trial program starting this week.

The government said in a statement that people who work or live in the city will be tested, regardless of if they are experiencing symptoms or not.

New technology, including swab tests and lateral flow tests, will allow test results to be provided within an hour or less without lab processing, the government added.
