Herd immunity only works when people are immune - i.e. there is a vaccine available. Small flaw in the plan there...

Xray machines are not designed to be delivered to home.
 
why not get one of those customs scanner vehicles and do it in Downing Street in front of press . PR opportunity and informative or just go to a hospital
Because the press in general and Beth Rigby, in particular, threw a track when the health Secretary was tested for CV ahead of the angels of the NHS. imagine the wailing and rending of garments if he did this.
 
I wish mr.Johnson fast recover.
