Mass Rapid Testing for Covid-19 to be Rolled Out on Wirral

It’s the Lateral Flow Immunoassay test:

The lateral flow test appears to be a new, quicker method of testing for the SARS2 coronavirus, one which doesn’t require the intervention of a lab, has a rapid turnaround time for results and is not prohibitively expensive.

It is currently being trialled in a City of Liverpool voluntary pilot scheme, one which is likely to be rolled out to 60+ additional locations.

We’re told in the future it has the potential to remove the air travel industry log-jam by quickly confirming staff and would-be passengers as Covid19-free.

But this is one to watch, and definitely an area where the public need to be vigilant!

How exactly does it work?
