UK and Scottish governments clash over testing

There’s a row brewing in Scotland over who is responsible for a delay to the publication of Covid test results.

On Sunday there were 316 new cases were recorded in 24 hours – a dramatic drop from 1,167 on Saturday.

The Scottish government said there was a “testing capacity issue” with the UK government Lighthouse lab in Glasgow, causing 64,000 tests to be re-routed to other sites.

The UK government, however, said this was “categorically untrue”.

A post on the Scottish government website said an increase in the number of positive Covid test results was expected on Monday and Tuesday.
