At the daily coronavirus briefing on March 25, the UK’s Chief Medical Officer, Chris Whitty, reiterated the need for UK access to coronavirus antibody tests.

But he acknowledged there is a worldwide demand for the tests, which is causing a shortage.

He said: “We do not have sufficient testing and this is a global problem because basically every country is wanting this new test, for a disease that wasn’t actually being tested for anywhere three months ago.

“So everybody wants this, so there is a global shortage and that’s a bottleneck for us.”
