100,000 tests to be carried out for Covid-19 from May 18

The HSE says people tested for Covid 19 should get a result within 48 hours by the middle of this month.

It’s aiming to ramp up testing to 100,000 a week from the 18th of May.

There’s been criticism after some people had to wait weeks for a test result in the past.

CEO of the HSE Paul Reid says they’re aiming to improve that.
