An MP has praised efforts to establish covid-19 testing centres in the north-east.
David Duguid, Scottish Conservative MP for Banff and Buchan, said: “It is great to see these UK Armed Services pop-up testing centres in the north-east.
“The response locally to this announcement has already been very positive.
“Applying for a test is a simple process. If you have symptoms and you are a key worker, unable to work from home or over-65, then you are eligible.
“There will be a limit to how many people can be tested so I urge local residents to be patient.
“But this is a clear step in the right direction as we work to contain the spread of this virus and try to avoid a deadly second wave.”
