We continue to make significant strides in our Test and Trace service, which forms a central part of the country’s COVID-19 recovery strategy. The service helps identify, contain and control coronavirus, reduce the spread of the virus and save lives. We continue to increase national testing capacity and two million people have now been reached by the service since it was launched.
