Coronavirus: target of 100,000 tests a day after criticism of delays – BBC News

The new target was announced by Health Secretary Matt Hancock. It follows criticism that previous targets have not been reached. One of Britain’s most eminent scientists, Sir Paul Nurse, has told the BBC that “the country wasn’t as well prepared as it should have been”.
