Coronavirus: airport testing ‘not a silver bullet’ to avoid quarantines, says Oliver Dowden

Oliver Dowden has dismissed the idea that coronavirus testing at airports could avoid the need for travel restrictions such as the two week quarantine placed on people returning from Spain last week. ‘It’s not the case that you can simply test somebody and be sure they don’t have the disease,’ the culture secretary told BBC Breakfast. ‘At this stage, it’s just not the case that we can simply test at the border and give people that assurance.’
