WHO’s special envoy on COVID-19, Dr. David Nabarro, has made an appeal for people to remember that the virus is “still nasty” – and that without mass testing in place it is difficult to monitor “where the virus is”, and as a result, COVID testing remains key to beating the virus.
This comes after the government ended free COVID testing around the country on April 1st 2022.
With the UK population already facing inflated energy prices, many people are feeling the squeeze, and now the government are expecting them to go and pay for their own tests. If the government will not step up, someone must, and when it comes to businesses and organisations, as business owners, you will need to step in to keep your staff and customers safe.
Testing isn’t just about finding the positives, but about monitoring the situation on a national scale. Currently, where is this information being documented? We don’t know whether people are testing or whether staff are coming in to work despite being positive. This is why COVID testing remains key to beating the virus. In order to enable safety, and efficiency within businesses and organisations, we need a reliable, well-managed testing system underpinned by smart, intuitive software – this is exactly what Testbase offers.
