    FFS how hard is it

    “ But the government website closed to new applicants within hours of the Friday launch, after 46,000 people tried to access it.

    Home testing kits became unavailable less than 15 minutes after bookings reopened on Saturday morning.
    Some 16,000 bookings were made.

    Tests at drive-through sites in England were booked up within an hour on Saturday morning, with spaces not becoming available again until the evening.”

    FFS how fking hard is it to create a queue and allocate spaces wirh notification emailed/SMSed to people who can also be validated?

    The official explanation is that all the slots are booked, so site re-opens when more slots are entered into the system.

    Also only those people who have symptoms (or live with people who have) are supposed to be booking up a test, they don't want people who are apparently well to be taking a test.

    Finally, there is no "proof" of key worker being asked for so it seems anyone can book a slot.

      Self-employed that have 'fallen through the cracks' of government assistance are booking tests in case they are asymptomatic so they can at least get statutory sick pay.
      Maybe tomorrow, I'll want to settle down. Until tomorrow, I'll just keep moving on.
