Matt Hancock – 2020 Comments on Increased Funding for Testing in Care Homes

The comments made by Matt Hancock, the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, on 23 December 2020.

We have worked throughout the pandemic to protect staff, and residents in care homes and today we are boosting rapid testing in care homes, with a further £149 million pounds to support that effort. All those who work in care homes across England will receive 2 rapid tests a week, in addition to their weekly PCR test.
