The public will be able to conduct coronavirus antibody tests at home within a matter of days, rather than weeks and months, MPs have heard. We hope that we have succeeded by giving you the full details and information.

Home testing for coronavirus is set to be available to people in the United Kingdom "within days", according to a health official.

"Several million tests have been purchased for use", said Prof Peacock.

This is anticipated to be completed by the end of the week. "We have to be clear they work as they are claimed to do", she told lawmakers.

She said a small number of tests would be tested in a laboratory before being distributed via Amazon and in places like Boots.

The test itself involves pricking the finger to produce a drop of blood, which is then analysed by the device.

The tests, which show whether someone has or has had the virus, will then be available for health workers and the public, she said.

Thousands of 15-minute home tests for the virus will be delivered by Amazon to people with symptoms in self-isolation, and will also be going on sale on the high street within days.

PHE say that the kits are in the very last stages of testing and are ready to be rolled out across the country in a move that could restore many people's lives to a semblance of pre-lockdown normality. The kits are now being tested.

Another "might require you to go somewhere like Boots because it requires a blood prick", she added.

There's now no word on how much the kits will cost. We believe our voice is important - both in representing the pro-EU perspective and also to help rebalance the right wing extremes of much of the United Kingdom national press.

"As the global demand for our COVID-19 test continues to increase, we are pleased to have rapidly established a relationship with the expert team at Yourgene to further expand our manufacturing capacity", Novacyt CEO Graham Mullis said.
