Boris Johnson Urges People To Get Tested For NYE …Even Though Lateral Flow Tests Remain Unavailable Online

Boris Johnson urged the public to test themselves ahead of Friday’s New Year Eve celebrations – even though there are currently no lateral flow tests available to order online.

The prime minister released a video on social media where he said: “The British people have responded heroically, voluntarily, and in almost incredible numbers to the call to get vaccinated.

“As I speak tonight on New Year’s Eve, we’ve met our target, we’ve doubled the speed of the booster rollout and it’s precisely because of that huge national effort that we can celebrate tonight at all.

“But I must, of course, urge everybody to be cautious and take a test if you’re going out, and to remember the importance of ventilation, follow the rules if you’re in Scotland or Wales or Northern Ireland.

“And I want to speak directly to the people who are yet to get fully vaccinated, the people who think the disease can’t hurt them, look at the people going to hospital now – that could be you.

“Look at the intensive care units and the miserable, needless suffering of those who did not get their booster. That could be you.”

He encouraged the public to make getting the vaccine their New Year’s resolution as it is “far easier than losing weight or keeping a diary”.
