A spokeswoman for Public Health England said: “NHS Test and Trace currently activates surge testing in areas where Variants of Concern are identified.

“The variant identified in Liverpool City Region, Warrington, Preston and West Lancashire has recently been classified a ‘variant under investigation’ (VUI) by the New and Emerging Respiratory Virus Threats Advisory Group (NERVTAG).

“Specialist public health teams are following up all cases with this variant and are monitoring the situation closely.

“Currently surge testing is not being activated for VUIs, but this remains under close review and local authorities continue to target existing testing resources in areas where cases of the VUI have been found.”
