A coronavirus tester at a Glasgow testing facility has contracted the virus. 

The worker at the Glasgow Airport facility was sent home to self-isolate after testing positive for Covid. 

A whistleblower told the Daily Record:  “It has been a nightmare.

"How ironic that a tester gets the virus? The man tested positive but that was it, nothing else was done.

"No-one else was sent home and there were no other measures introduced."

The UK Government's Department of Health and Social Care, which runs the testing facility, confirmed a steward tested positive. 

A spokesman added: "We have measures in place to maintain health and safety at sites including stringent social distancing rules, site cleaning multiple times a day to adhere to strict standards of hygiene, and the use of Personal Protective Equipment in line with the latest guidance.”
