Surge testing will begin in Nuneaton, according to NHS Test and Trace. The service announced it would conduct new sequencing in the area, following identification of the B1617.2 variant. Test and Trace added it would also deploy “enhanced contact tracing” where cases emerge.

Three wards in Nuneaton will be subject to the new test and tracing rules.

They include Wembrook and Abbey, and will see everyone asked to take part.

Anyone living or working in the area and all children over the age of two must take a PCR test whether they have symptoms or not.

Any positive cases will warrant enhanced tracing over an extended time.
