Coronavirus Testing Stations

Post by Sunderland Nut »

They must consider Sunderland as being a coronavirus hotspot because the NHS testing stations are all over the town.
Latest one I saw is where they built the new fire station at the Gill.
I dread to see the new figures because before all these stations there was a lot anyway.
That's about the 5th coronavirus station I've seen unless they are mobile ones and are moving around town.
They look like drive-ins.

Wonder how many people have used it? Do they publish these figures on a local level, or is it a secret?

Nobody using it when I was there but loads of workers having laugh and some with no masks on :o
They publish the figures but I've not seen any on a local micro-scale ie Millfield etc.

There is another coronavirus testing station on European Way in Pallion close to Rolls Royce.
All the testing stations have the notice:

"No appointment
No admission"

Yes because it needs to be a little orderly ;)

They are catching those with symptoms but we all know that you might not get symptoms for days and in that time you've passed it on to loads.

I want to see anti-body testing stations rather than these monstrosities.
