COVID-19 testing has become a major challenge in Mexico

Description:

Mexico has one of the highest number of COVID-19 deaths in the world. One of its biggest challenges has been the access to testing.

Correspondent Alasdair Baverstock takes a look at "why" it has been a constant problem.   


The Health Secretary has admitted there are "challenges" with the #coronavirus testing system following a "sharp rise" in demand.

Speaking in the House of Commons, Matt Hancock said the government was "working hard" to fix issues with COVID-19 testing availability but admitted it could take a "matter of weeks".

He revealed tests were now having to be prioritised and also hinted that they could be further rationed in the future.
