Coronavirus: UK to test 25,000 people daily as Surrey reports 39 confirmed cases

As Surrey reports more and more confirmed cases of the Coronavirus infections as part of the COVID19 pandemic gripping the world, the UK Government has announced that they are ramping up testing to 25,000 people daily.

Just a week ago, the NHS was testing 5,000 people daily it’s expecting to reach a capacity of 25,000 daily tests in the next four weeks. With testing potentially reaching 10,000 in the coming week.

Adding to this, Prime Minister Boris Johnson has hinted that there is a test in the pipeline that may be able to confirm whether the person has had and recovered from COVID19.

Public Health England released the latest figures for confirmed cases on 18 March 2020 as Surrey at 39, London at 953, and the UK at 2,626 the Government. Exact locations for confirmed cases is not revealed as part of this data from Public Health England.

The UK’s Chief Scientific Adviser has suggested that the UK may have up to 55,000 coronavirus cases already. This is based on the estimate of 1 death for every 1,000 cases. Sir Patrick Vallance said “We’ve tried to get a handle on that in Sage (Scientific Advisory Group for Emergencies) and if you put all the modelling information together, that’s a reasonable ballpark way of looking at it.” adding that the suggested figure is “not more accurate than that.”
