One of the UK's biggest issues with trying to tackle the COVID-19 pandemic are asymptomatic carriers of the virus and, more importantly, how to detect them.
These are people who have been infected with the virus but have no symptoms and often don't even know they have it. A study in the UK last year found that as many as 86 percent of people who get the virus are asymptomatic.
The UK government is pushing ahead with widespread quick result lateral flow tests, setting up 317 testing sites across England. These centers are available to people showing no symptoms but who regularly work outside their home, especially in care homes, hospitals, construction, retail and transport – sectors that haven't shut down with the rest of the country.
