The Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, said:
“Additional testing will be taking place in a targeted area within SE16 in Southwark after a confirmed case of the COVID-19 variant first discovered in South Africa was found.
“It’s vital that all those who are asked to take a PCR test in this area do so, regardless of whether they have symptoms or not.
“This testing is essential to help monitor and supress the spread of the virus, so I urge everyone contacted in this area and all those living and working in Wandsworth and in Lambeth to book their tests as soon as possible.”
