The government has announced a further expansion of the testing programme in England focusing on people in jobs with high levels of public contact such as taxi drivers, cleaners and shop staff.

They will be tested even if they are not showing any symptoms in an effort to identify the large numbers of people who have the virus but are asymptomatic.
