New tests which detect coronavirus in 90 minutes to be rolled out in England – BBC News

Two different tests which can detect coronavirus and flu within 90 minutes are to be made available in England, starting mostly in hospitals.

The labs which have devised them say they are more reliable than current swab tests, with almost 100% accuracy.

Meanwhile some of the lockdown restrictions imposed on Leicester at the end of June, after a rise in the number of cases there, have been relaxed. But other parts of the north of England are facing tougher rules .
