Covid-19: Rapid tests for asymptomatic people to be rolled out

Regular rapid testing for people without coronavirus symptoms will be made available across England this week, the government has said.

The community testing regime - expanded to cover all 317 local authorities - uses rapid lateral flow tests, which can return results in 30 minutes.

Local councils are being encouraged to prioritise tests for those who cannot work from home during the lockdown.

Meanwhile, thousands of people over 80 are being invited to book vaccinations.

NHS England says 130,000 letters with invitations for vaccinations at one of seven new regional centres began arriving on doormats this weekend,
with more than 500,000 following this week.

On Saturday the number of people who have died in the UK within 28 days of a positive Covid test reached 80,000.

Scientists advising the government have warned that lockdown measures in England need to be stricter to achieve the same impact as
the March shutdown.

England's chief medical Prof Chris Whitty said that, unless people started to follow the rules more strictly, emergency patients will have to be
turned away from hospitals, causing "avoidable deaths".

Writing in the Sunday Times, Prof Whitty said: "Every unnecessary interaction you have could be the link in a chain of transmission which has
a vulnerable person at the end."

Meanwhile, the chair of the British Medical Association, Chaand Nagpaul, revealed that more than 46,000 hospital staff are off sick with Covid-19,
which is adding to the pressure on the NHS and beginning to affect the vaccination programme, the Observer reports.

Under the national lockdown, people in England must stay at home and can go out only for limited reasons such as food shopping, exercise,
or work if they cannot do so from home. Similar measures are in place across much of Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.
