For the third day running there are no lateral flow tests available as the government website says, there are no “home delivery slots left.”
Deputy Prime Minister Dominic Raab blamed blamed “the allocation and distribution, or the delivery, of it,” as the issue is not due to a lack of supply.
Raab told BBC Breakfast, “We know that in relation to the online system there were some challenges yesterday [Monday] and that’s partly because of the proportion they’ve got each day.
“We’re making sure that however people may wish to order them and procure them, we’re ramping up not just the capacity…but the ability to distribute and to deliver.”
Dr Jenny Harries, chief executive of the UK Health Security Agency, warned this morning that Omicron is “probably the most significant threat we’ve had since the start of the Covid pandemic.”
