Britain to Roll Out Millions of 90-Minute COVID-19 Tests, While US Tests Still Take Days For Results
While the U.S. for-profit health care system still offers COVID-19 test that require days to give results, the U.K. government-run health care system is rolling out 90-minute COVID-19 tests.
U.K. Health Minister Matt Hancock told the Thomas Reuters Foundation News how people will be able to test themselves for the coronavirus and the flu:
The fact these tests can detect flu as well as COVID-19 will be hugely beneficial as we head into winter, so patients can follow the right advice to protect themselves and others.
The government-run National Health Service said it would be offering “COVID-friendly” treatments to cancer patients, including drugs that do not have a big impact on the immune system.
