More key workers able to replace isolation with daily tests as ‘pingdemic’ causes chaos

Channel 4 News published this video item, entitled “More key workers able to replace isolation with daily tests as ‘pingdemic’ causes chaos” – below is their description.

Empty shelves, cancelled trains, restaurants closing for days – councils and businesses have warned that the sheer numbers of people getting pinged could cause weeks of disruption.

The Government have expanded the groups of critical workers in England who’ll be allowed to avoid having to self isolate.

Another 31,000 new Covid cases have been reported across the UK – as Labour urged the Government to give clear guidance on the rules – or “risk making this summer of chaos and confusion even worse”.
