Hopes of three day turnaround testing from Monday

 

The HSE is hoping turnaround times for a Covid test will be three days from Monday.

The Health Executive says it's been working to update its technology to automate results.

Latest figures show there are 23,400 confirmed cases here and 1,497 people have lost their lives.

CEO of the HSE, Paul Reid, says it will take three days from reporting symptoms to getting a result.
