        My better half works in the Lighthouse lab in Cheshire.

        They have been working up for the last 7-10 days, running a single shift.
        From next week they move to a 4 shift 24x7 rotation, 42,000 tests per week capacity.

              How is it good news? With more tests we will have more confirmed cases, let's stop testing to drive statistics down.

                It's good news that the government is going to meet one of its targets.

                Admittedly it's a target that they then said they would meet tenfold, but hey, let's forget their promises.
