People trying to order tests through the government website told that ‘no more tests can be ordered’
The UK has seemingly run out of Covid-19 lateral flow tests just hours after most mandatory coronavirus restrictions were eased in England.
People attempting to order supplies of the at-home kits via the government’s website are being told to “try again tomorrow when more tests become available”.
They are then advised to try ordering through the NHS England website instead – but are reportedly redirected back to gov.uk.
The message reads: “Sorry no more tests can be ordered today.
“No more rapid lateral flow tests can be ordered online or through the call centre today.
“Please try again tomorrow when more tests will be available.”
It comes on the so-called “Freedom Day” as most mandatory coronavirus restrictions in England were lifted on Monday.
