Wouldn’t you just know it?
Celebrities, members of the nobility who are paid over £300 a day just to sign in, and many of Britain’s largest businesses, are sidestepping Government rules by paying for private coronavirus tests, it has emerged.
More than 2,000 people have paid £375 each for a home kit produced by a Harley Street clinic after being refused testing by the NHS, The Telegraph has learned.
Around 60 large firms, including an oil company and a major telecoms business, have ordered the tests for their entire workforce, it is understood.
It comes after Public Health England announced last week that people would no longer be tested for coronavirus unless their symptoms were severe enough to merit hospital treatment.
Imagine it, sign in for your attendance money, leave five minutes later and take a taxi to Harley Street to buy your coronavirus test! What a despicable bunch of hypocrites!
