The health minister Edward Argar told Nick Robinson the government is "ramping up" testing capacity but will need to prioritise key workers. He said: “We will see this in the next few days, the official guidance coming out that will prioritise frontline NHS care workers, teachers and similar.” He went on to say:
"It is possible that there are people with symptoms who apply for a test who have to wait longer because we are prioritising those key frontline workers we need to keep our NHS and care system working."
