Lateral Flow Tests are a quick and easy way to check if you have been infected with coronavirus.In Scotland, LFTs are still available for free until the end of this month.

Meanwhile, free Covid testing was scrapped in England at the beginning of April, with the exception of some NHS workers, carers, prison workers and employees in high risk domestic violence refuges.

Simple and easy LFTs can deliver results in minutes and use a litmus paper and solution to highlight that the test has worked successfully with one line, and a second red line if the virus is present in your saliva.

Around one in three people with the virus don’t show symptoms, so can spread to others without knowing, according to NHS Inform.
