£23million for Virus Testing in Wales

Governments working to 'defeat' coronavirus

£23million of extra funding will be used to to support coronavirus testing in Wales during the pandemic.

The UK Government is arranging supplies of tests on behalf of all UK nations, with the Welsh Government deciding how best to use its test allocations.

Secretary of State for Wales Simon Hart said: “The UK Government is committed to doing whatever it takes to defeat coronavirus.

“We are supporting the Welsh Government to meet the exceptional challenges it currently faces, providing £23 million more in additional funding.  

“Along with the recent roll-out of antibody tests for front-line workers across the UK, the additional funding for Wales highlights our determination to move forward together in the fight against coronavirus.”
