Mass Covid testing in Merthyr Tydfil after recording highest rate of new cases in UK

Scores of people have turned up at a pilot scheme of mass coronavirus testing in Merthyr Tydfil. Rapid Covid-19 tests are being offered to the area's residents and workers even if they do not have symptoms, a week after the town registered the highest rate of new cases in the UK.

Lateral flow tests give results within 20 to 30 minutes, with people who test positive then given a traditional swab test and asked to return home so they can self-isolate immediately.
