Symptom-free coronavirus testing sites open at the Kent Showground in Detling

Kent Showground has been transformed into a military operated mass coronavirus testing centre.

The site in Detling is one of 14 new symptom-free testing stations, available to people who live and work in Kent, which have opened in a bid to drive down infection rates.

On arrival people have their temperature taken by military personnel before sanitising their hands, registering online and then going onto the self-testing booths.

Once people have had their tests, the results are sent through to their phones within an hour.

If positive, they will be told to self-isolate, follow the national guidance and instructed to have a further test to confirm the positive result.

If they are negative, they must continue to observe social distancing guidelines, wear a mask in public and regularly wash hands.
