Coronavirus: How a 'drive-through' testing facility in London works

The NHS has launched a new scheme to test people for coronavirus, which can cause the respiratory disease Covid-19.

The BBC's health editor, Hugh Pym, was shown a demonstration of how a "drive-through" testing facility purpose-built at Central London Community Healthcare NHS Trust will work.

This sort of safe and convenient testing scheme is being rolled out across the country at NHS sites.

More than 7,000 people in the UK have been tested for the virus, with 15 people testing positive so far.
