Piers Morgan lashes out as Boris Johnson takes part in ‘contact testing pilot’ ‘Terrible!’

Broadcaster Piers Morgan has slammed the “terrible” decision for the Prime Minister to take part in a testing pilot scheme. It comes after Boris Johnson was contacted by NHS Test and Trace.

Boris was contacted by Test and Trace after Health Secretary Sajid Javid confirmed he had tested positive for coronavirus.

In compliance with Covid regulations, those who came in contact with Mr Javid are to self-isolate.

However, Number 10 confirmed that the Prime Minister, along with Rishi Sunak will continue to work from Downing Street.

A spokesperson said “they will be participating in a daily contact testing pilot to allow them to continue to work from Downing Street.”

However, Piers instantly took to social media to share his thoughts.

The former Good Morning Britain anchor tweeted: “WHAT? So once again, one rule for the people setting the rules and another for the rest of us? This is a terrible decision.”

Oslo plans to reduce corona testing capacity

In the autumn, the coronavirus testing capacity in Oslo will be reduced. According to Health Councilor Robert Steen (AP), this will mean a reduction in the number of employees at the test stations.

According to the Health Agency, a total test capacity of 4% is planned from October 1, 2021. In other words, 4% of Oslo’s population will be able to be tested weekly, newspaper Avisa Oslo writes.

At present, the capacity is 5%.

“This means a reduction from 364 to 155 employees at the test stations,” Steen noted.

Phasing out

The further phasing out will take place through the closure of the test stations at Aker Hospital and Bryn fire station. The opening hours at Mortensrud, Rommen, and Adamstuen on the weekends will be limited.

“Between October 1 and the turn of the year, there is a need to have some capacity with private actors for contingency reasons, among other things. It gives us more legs to stand on and increased flexibility for the inhabitants by giving them access to testing spread around the city,” Steen added.
