Covid: Bracknell Forest and Slough ask for variant surge testing



Surge testing could be slotxo ผ่านเว็บ extended in parts of Berkshire amid rising cases of the Covid-19 Delta variant.


Bracknell Forest Council and Slough Borough Council have officially requested that testing is deployed in key areas where infection rates have risen.


Both authorities said a number of cases of the Delta variant, first identified in India, had been linked to schools.


Surge testing is already in place in parts of Wokingham and Reading.


Bracknell Forest said the Delta variant was now the most dominant in the borough, where Covid cases had risen from 5.7 per 100,000 on 20 May to 96.3 on 4 June.


It said an increasing number of cases had "spread through wider community transmission rather than through a contained outbreak".


Slough said case rates across the town had risen from 23.4 on 14 May to 72.2 on Thursday, where the Delta variant was also the most dominant.


If approved by Public Health England, residents in surge testing areas will be asked to pick up tests from dedicated sites - not through 119 or - so they can be checked specifically for the variant.
