Geneva, Jun 24, 2020, SPA -- Britain's coronavirus testing programme could help to give a picture of how the virus spread of the virus in the country, Reuters quoted Mike Ryan, head of the World Health Organization (WHO) emergencies programme, as saying today.
"Testing in the UK has increased, the surveillance system is capable of understanding where the UK is," he told a news briefing, adding that many countries including Britain had "fought hard" and were making a "steady" exit from lockdown.
"The UK is taking a stepwise approach, the UK is listening to the science," Ryan said.
