PM: In ‘Near Future’ Britain, Staff Will Have to Take Coronavirus Tests Daily to be Allowed to Work, Socialise

UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson laid out the future for the nation the government is working towards, where daily coronavirus testing becomes a fact of life for millions and failing a test means being banned from social spaces and the workplace.

Tacked on to the end of his announcement on Wednesday on the introduction of new, harsher restrictions on personal freedoms as the number of new infections — if not deaths — starts to rise, the prime minister said the way tests are used would change in the “near future”.

At the moment, Boris Johnson said, testing is primarily used to actively identify those who are infected with coronavirus, but in the future that would change as tests became quicker to resolve. Instead, testing would be used to merely confirm that individuals were not infected.
