Ok I watched it for you, a random collection of clips taken out of context -there was no news. What's the point in you shearing it.

So a mass finger prick test will be rolled out. Say it proves you have had it and so are free to work and go back to normal, would there need to be some sort of proof to be carried to so the police "your virus papers please".Also these people already had it can go back to work on 100% income so wouldn't that lead to people actually wanting to catch it so they too can go back to work.

I’ve googled and cone up with this.
https://www.theguardian.com/world/2020/mar/25/uk-coronavirus-mass-home-testing-to-be-made-available-within-days
Seems to be some way off yet.
If they do work, then surely the first thing to do is to carry out – if you like the virus testing equivalent of a poll.  Then we’ll know where we are.
