Labour warned the Government test and trace is the key to easing lockdown restrictions and controlling the coronavirus safely. But instead of the “world-beating” system the Prime Minister promised, the system is in total chaos because the Government got the planning wrong.
Yet again, the Government have been too slow in tackling the coronavirus. They were too slow to lockdown. Too slow to ramp up testing. Too slow to get PPE to key workers. And now too slow with sorting test, track and trace. The Government needs to get a grip otherwise their failed planning risks a second wave of infections.
