Subject: RE: BS: New news on the pandemic COVID-19
Those were my words Nigel just from memory. The article I read being that the suggesion was you would only qualify for a 'free test' if you were symptomatic or in care home settings etc. Yes in the case of symptomatic that would be a PCR anyway. The point it was suggesting - was that the ending of free lateral flow tests would save a huge amount of money. It may well have been an unsubstantiated rumour - or them testing the water - or simply it came up in their discussions and wasn't seriously considered. Who knows? It was relevant to the discussion though.
