Coronavirus: Military to test key workers in mobile units

The military is to begin testing essential workers around the UK for coronavirus in mobile units which will operate in “hard to reach” areas.

At least 96 new pop-up facilities, which will travel to care homes, police and fire stations, prisons and benefits centres, are due to be running by May.

It comes as the government looks to reach its target of carrying out 100,000 tests per day by Thursday.

More than 20,000 people have died with coronavirus in the UK.
