Health bosses call for mobile Covid-19 testing units to remain in Lincolnshire
Lincolnshire’s health bosses are urging government leaders to keep mobile testing units in the county as they face being redeployed elsewhere this week.
The units, which are run by the army and currently travel between Boston, Skegness and Grantham, have been helping county health bosses achieve their 1,000 a day testing targets.
On Friday, the unit carried out more than 600 tests across Boston and Skegness, while the regional centre at the Lincolnshire Showground carried out 500 on Friday, dropping to 328 on Saturday.
