First trial of city-wide coronavirus testing begins in Liverpool – BBC News

The first trial of city-wide coronavirus testing has begun in Liverpool. Anyone who lives or works in the city regardless of whether they have symptoms is eligible for a test.

The trial aims to assess how widespread the infection is – and could lead to mass testing in other towns and cities.

Meanwhile new figures from the Office for National Statistics suggest that the rate of coronavirus infections across England and Wales appears to be slowing down.

Even so, in the last week of October, more than 600,000 people in England were infected with the virus, that’s one in 90.

Sophie Raworth presents BBC News at Ten reporting by health correspondent Dominic Hughes and science correspondent Rebecca Morelle.
