The British government has purchased 200 million COVID-19 tests and the results can be returned within 15 minutes, which gives fans more and more hopes of returning to national stadiums.
Since Liverpool played for Atletico Madrid in the Champions League in March, the country’s professional matches have been without supporters. Although initially hoped to return in October, the increase in cases delayed the move indefinitely.
However, the government can purchase a test that can return results within 15 minutes in bulk. This test is called a “free pass” and is not subject to quality restrictions.
Report from telegraphAccording to leaked documents, a kit worth £5 will be awarded next month, which can detect three-quarters of COVID-1
Starting in January, 60 million tests will be completed every month, and 192,000 tests will be completed by March to help the country return to normal levels early next year.
The news was announced when a large-scale testing center was launched in Liverpool this month and continued to be launched throughout England. A total of 70 areas will soon be tested.
These tests are widely used and can reduce the spread of the virus, and government scientists say their findings have paved the way for “free daily passage.”
If the test result is negative in the morning, the public can participate in football matches, such as bars and theaters.
Sir John Bell, a professor of medicine at the University of Oxford Regis University, said: “These cheap, easy-to-use tests can play an important role in our fight against Covid-19.
“They identified those who might spread the disease, and using them systematically for large-scale testing can reduce transmission by 90%.”
It relies to a large extent on public cooperation to conduct popularization tests, because popularization is essential to discover progressive cases and reduce community communication.
As the country continues to fight the second wave, there seems to be some way to go, but the news of new tests and the recent success of the vaccine provide people with new hope to open the door to football fans and society as a whole.
