Door to door COVID-19 testing returns to Leicester

By Beatriz Abreu Ferreira

Door to door COVID-19 testing will be again used in areas of Leicester with higher infection rates.

Households in areas with high infection rates will be asked to take swab tests, even if they do not have any symptoms of coronavirus.

A similar approach was followed over the summer which helped the city’s infection rate go down to 25 per 100,000 people.

Alongside this measure, there will continue to be rapid lateral flow testing, and the city’s walk-in and drive-in test centres.
