UK technical failure in coronavirus testing data system now fixed
Britain reported a jump in daily coronavirus cases to a record 22,961 on Sunday, after authorities said a technical issue had meant that over 15,000 test results had not been transferred into computer systems on time, including for contact tracers.
“The glitch has been found and fixed and I’m sure that the changes are brought in straight away to make sure this sort of problem doesn’t happen again,” Coffey told Sky News.
“I’m sure that PHE (Public Health England) will not be allowing that issue to happen again,” she said. ■
