Government Scrambles to Clear Up Testing Fiasco

The government are currently rushing to get back on top of its Coronavirus communications after days of unclear and mixed messages regarding the country’s testing situation. Boris has even brought back election expert, Isaac Levido, to hone more clear messaging. The Mail and The Times both splash on the debacle this morning…
