The British government is working on a coronavirus test that gives results in as little as 20 minutes. The government will invest in the plan amid the criticism by critics who say tests for the virus are being rationed because the system can't cope with demand. According to Health Secretary Matt Hancock, the government is expanding trials of two new tests that include a no-swab saliva test and another that gives results in minutes.
