COVID Symptoms

Post by thingamajig »

How on earth are we supposed to get a local test in Sunderland?
I have been looking for a good 45 minutes following links galore with no success.
I have even rang 119 with no luck.
I can only assume they have stopped the walk/drive in tests and are now sending test kits out instead.
Well, I will just pass on this one and not know if I have it!

I tried as well and couldn't find an appointment system even though it says there is one.

It's all probably went to a commercial venture now.

If there's no free testing knocking about, how do they know there were a million cases of it in the last week or whatever?

You take a test - instant with their kits and then you inform the NHS online.

I got a test kit sent because I wanted to know if I have the lurgy or not.
I tested negative, thank God.

There are about 5 million with Covid-19 in the UK right now.
