Boots and Amazon support NHS in coronavirus testing drive

Boots has revealed it will revive its staff bonus scheme

Boots and Amazon have joined forces with the government to launch a new coronavirus testing drive for frontline NHS staff.

The government has drafted in help from industry, philanthropy and universities in a bid to significantly scale up testing for health workers.

Boots pharmacies started supplying volunteer healthcare clinicians as testers over the weekend and will continue its support as the testing is rolled out across the UK.

Testing will not be done at Boots stores and the tests will not be made available over the counter or for purchase online from any retailers.
