LONDON, Aug 19 (Reuters) - Britain is planning to bring in population-wide mass testing for coronavirus to help control the pandemic, said health minister Matt Hancock on Wednesday.
“This is a really, really important drive that we have across government to bring in mass testing, population-wide testing,” Hancock told BBC radio.
“We’ll ramp it up, certainly over the remainder of this year.”
