Covid Lateral Flow Test Centre, Wigston

Covid Lateral Flow Test Centre, Wigston

We have been asked by the Freer Centre in Wigston to let residents know they have lots of capacity for testing. Please book online: www.gov.uk/find-covid-19-lateral-flow-test-site

The government wants lateral flow tests to be used to identify asymptomatic people, as one in three people with COVID-19 has no symptoms.

They use similar technology to a pregnancy test and can produce a result within about 30 minutes.

Lateral flow tests are a type of antigen testing, where they look for antigens - proteins on the surface of the virus to detect if a person has COVID-19.

No laboratory equipment is needed, meaning they can be done quicker and more easily than PCR tests.
