1000 tests done in Wirral on Monday the first day of mass testing. No appointments necessary.

You just need a mobile number or email address to register when you arrive. If you use reading glasses take them with you. If you do not have a mobile number or email address you will be asked to call 119 to get your results.

This mass testing is only for people showing no symptoms.

If you do have symptoms then self-isolate as should others in your household, if you are concerned with your symptoms or need advice phone 111, if somebody is seriously ill (especially a child under 5) phone 999.

Apparently the quick tests are only picking up 51 odd% of infections, I attended hospital recently and had my third test, this time it was administered by one nurse showing the other the correct way, nearly threw up on the throat one then came the snozzle she stuck it up my poor old conk and turned it around 10 times, i actually commented that it hadn't been done to that degree before and she said well that's the correct way.

That's what I don't like about these tests.
I retch everytime I brush my tongue when doing my teeth, never mind touching my throat.
Had a camera down my throat once and thought I was going to die, haha!

I wonder if that could be something to do with the weekend and the incubation period. People mix a bit more at weekend and it takes 4 days or so to incubate ?

Some slight changes to the opening hours for test centres.

Floral Pavilion, New Brighton 10.30am–6.30pm, 7 days a week
Greasby Library 10.30am–6.30pm, 7 days a week
Eastham Library 10.30am–6.30pm, 7 days a week
Birkenhead Market 9.30am–4.30pm, 6 days a week (closed Sundays)

There was a little misunderstanding on Tuesday the 15th leading to mass test centres closing earlier than anticipated.

In the first week (Mon 7th to Sun 13th December) we had 11,743 mass tests conducted producing 57 positive results. The busiest test centre was Greasby Library with the Floral Pavillion not far behind, followed by Eastham Library then Birkenhead Market (which had much less opening hours than the others).

People are more likely to mix longer with more people at work and school. I guess Its just the type of people that wanted to be tested first that gave the increasing profile. It carried on increasing through the rest of week 1.

I'm not sure how soon after infection the result would give a clear positive on these tests. its probably a pretty inexact and highly variable figure if there is an official one, I'm not going to hunt through the data sets for it.

Covid Symptom-Free testing is now by appointment only.

To book a test visit https://liverpoolccg.enterpriseappointments.com/v2/#book/count/1/provider/any/

For symptom free testing you probably need the last item (Wirral Lateral Flow Testing)?

Personally I find this online booking system appalling and there should be a phone number to make bookings.
