Over the weekend military personnel have been providing assistance to Mobile Testing Units (MTUs) at various locations across the United Kingdom.
This morning the UK MoD released a News Package of imagery with extended captions, captured between Friday and Sunday, along with this notice:-
“This week military personnel have been providing assistance to Mobile Testing Units (MTUs) at various locations across the UK. MTUs are able to test individuals and their families who have been identified as key workers and may have shown systems of Coronavirus. Upon arrival to an MTU, individuals are directed to drive through a lane where military personnel provide them with instructions starting from how to conduct the test, to how to dispense a test upon completion.
“Soldiers from 102 Brigade and 16 Signal Regiment have been training in Lincolnshire preparing for mobile testing in the local community, whilst the 4th Battalion The Yorkshire Regiment have been providing testing at a mobile facility at Scarborough Park & Ride. The Second Battalion The Royal Anglians set up and manned their first test centre in Hertfordshire whilst The Grenadier Guards were on hand to support a testing facility in Dulwich, London. Royal Marines from 42 Commando have set up an MTU in Salisbury and have testing individuals at the facility, as part of the Military Assistance to Civilian Authority request.
“The Armed Forces continue to provide support during the outbreak and stand ready to offer assistance when needed.”
