Justin Madders – 2020 Comments on Track and Test Numbers

The comments made by Justin Madders, the Shadow Health Minister, on 17 September 2020.

Four months after the test and trace system was set up it is a huge concern that performance continues to go backwards.

The Government advice has been clear throughout that relaxing lockdown will only be successful if we have a fully functional test and trace system but instead we see it on the verge of collapse.

Perhaps the biggest problem is that people cannot get tested which means thousands of people are not going into the system in the first place. Ministers must get a grip and fix testing now.
