The Covid-19 test-and-trace system planned by the government has become more hay wired as families are asked to travel hundreds of miles to get their tests done.
The North-East of England has been under new lockdown regulation since this Saturday. The people living there have been asked to apply for testing in Barnsley and Dumfries. Many have been directed to visit Bolton which is one of the worst affected towns with Covid-19 for drive-through tests.
There have been additional restrictions imposed on the entire northern states where 20 to 40 percent of the people seeking tests could not get them done.
The Labour MP for Wansbeck, Ian Lavery has spoken about this risen concern. People are forced to travel hundreds of miles to get their family members and children tested for COVID-19. Ian also states that the children of Wansbeck have the same rights as those in Eton to be tested.
With the infections rising to over 4000 a day, Boris Johnson has begun what he called to be the ‘World-beating COVID test-and-trace system’.
With more localized restrictions imposed on Midlands and West Yorkshire, this will cause new problems for people living there who need COVID aid.
Experts believe that the Boris’s plan was not well thought through and so far has been reclusive of the weak and poor.
