People may soon be offered a ‘spit in a pot’ coronavirus test, after promising trial results.
The LampORE test checks for the virus in saliva samples and work carried out with the help of more than 1,000 NHS volunteers shows it is good at finding cases, even if someone has no symptoms.
Pop-up labs that can process up to 2,000 tests a day have been set up in trucks that could travel the country.
Four have already been deployed, says the government.
These mobile units are located in Aberdeen, Telford, Brent and Newbury.
