The good news for folks in Birmingham, England, is that the government is handing out coronavirus tests door-to-door. The bad news is the swabs are suspiciously moist.
Volunteers and RAF personnel distributed kits to households in those areas on Tuesday. Ms Dunne said she had been told to complete the test within 15 minutes and the team would then return to collect it.
"The boxes… were sealed packages with test tubes and swabs inside which had already been snapped off, so obviously it had been used," she said. She said as soon as they had realised they "went running up the street to notify the workers handing out the tests".
