Targeted testing is to start in Nottingham, UK for two weeks after a rise in cases of the Indian variant of Covid. Nottingham City Council said some cases had been found in shared, private accommodation in the city. It said not all cases related to travel and some were “thought to have been picked up via community transmission”. Public Health England, which elevated the Indian variant as a “variant of concern” last week, said it was monitoring them “extremely closely”.
