Establishment has decided to reduce # of COVID diagnoses, just like that/ The Telegraph

Free Covid testing to be limited to cut £2bn monthly cost, says Boris Johnson

Prime Minister confirms free lateral flow and PCR tests will end and Number 10 will encourage personal responsibility

Britain will begin Covid testing "at a much lower level" after a government review on living with the virus this week, Boris Johnson has said.

The Prime Minister highlighted the cost to the taxpayer of providing free lateral flow and PCR tests and confirmed that the policy would end.

It is not known when the free testing regime will end, with sources suggesting the tests could be phased out in the coming months as the weather improves and cases decline.

Asked on the BBC's Sunday Morning Programme about the system of free testing and the possibility of losing early warning signals, Mr Johnson said: "I want to make sure that we have capability to spot stuff and to snap back up as fast as we need to.

"We need resilience but we don't need to keep, for instance on testing, we don't need to keep spending at a rate of £2 billion a month, which is what we were doing in January.

"We will be testing at a much lower level... as the number of cases diminishes, and certainly the number of patients in hospital is thankfully coming down now, the number of cases in ICU is certainly way, way down, we're in a different world.

"I think it is important that people should feel confident again and that people should feel able to go back to work in the normal way. I do want to see our country really getting back on its feet."
