This is from a friend of mine. So not hearsay.
“So I had some symptoms this week and dutifully went off to ........... to get tested. The wait for a result is 48 hours they say. Already a problem with delaying starting contact tracing.
After 48 hours I phoned to ask where my result was and got told there is a backlog and it will be 7 to 10 days.
A few hours later having thought about it more I phoned back and asked again and was given the answer by someone else that the delay is 10 to 14 days- they are struggling with the backlog, they said.
Now testing and tracing is not rolled out yet but the backlog means we are far far away from any kind of test and trace system.
I am not sure if this is good or bad but I then told them I was a doctor and was concerned about contact tracing. I got my result within 5 minutes by text. “
