Covid testing remains stuck at just 25pc of capacity

Commenting on the latest weekly testing capacity, Shadow Minister for Health, Angela Burns MS, said:“The latest statistics point to an extremely alarming situation, where – again – only a quarter of capacity was used. “It is appalling that only 3,100 tests were carried out in the last 24 hours when the current capacity is 12,374.“Time and time again the Welsh Government has missed every opportunity available to it to increase the number of test to match capacity. Swift action is needed to increase the current capacity, as well as to address the growing level of concern.” You may also be interested in   Latest economic data show a Welsh economy in declineTuesday, 16 June, 2020Economic inactivity in Wales is nearly three percentage points higher (23.2pc) in Wales than the UK average (20.5), figures up – until April 2020 – released today by the Welsh Government indicate.
