Surge testing deployed in more parts of Birmingham after case of South African variant


share close

Surge testing is being deployed in parts of Birmingham after a case of the South African variant was discovered.

Areas of Alum Rock and Glebe Farm & Tile Cross have been targeted for testing and all those in the affected places are being told to come forward for a test.

The person who tested positive for the variant has gone into self-isolation and their contacts have been identified, according to the Department of Health.

Last week, surge testing was introduced in a different part of Birmingham after a single case of the variant was found there.

Health officials said initial investigations suggest the new case is “not linked to a case previously identified in the Birmingham and Sandwell areas”.
