The group said it was “an isolated incident attributed to one laboratory” and people affected would be contacted and advised to get another test.

Britain conducts about 1 million coronavirus tests a day and reported almost 40,000 new infections a day over the past week.

Tests are required for everyone visiting or returning to the U.K. from abroad. The government is easing those rules, however, announcing that starting Oct. 24 fully vaccinated travelers to England from most countries can take quick lateral flow tests rather than costlier PCR tests. People can take the tests at home and will have to send a photo to verify the results.

Transport Secretary Grant Shapps acknowledged that the system would be “based on trust.”

“Of course, the system requires people to be honest, like so many laws in this country,” he said.

Ammensa was awarded a 119 million-pound ($163 million) coronavirus-testing contract by the British government in October 2020. Chief executive Andrea Riposati said the company was “fully collaborating” with U.K. health authorities.

The U.K. Health Security Agency said the Immensa Health Clinic Ltd. lab in the central England city of Wolverhampton has been suspended from processing swabs after the false negatives.

Will Welfare, the agency’s public health incident director, said it was working “to determine the laboratory technical issues” behind the inaccurate tests.

The issue was uncovered after some people who were positive for COVID-19 when they took rapid tests went on to show up as negative on more accurate PCR tests.

The health agency said that “around 400,000 samples have been processed through the lab, the vast majority of which will have been negative results, but an estimated 43,000 people may have been given incorrect negative PCR test results,” mostly in southwest England. The incorrect results were given between Sept. 8 and Oct. 12.

VIDEO: Triple vaxed Comedian Heather McDonald collapses after joking about unvaxed.

See here hospital instagram about the subject, where she is hospitalized in Tempe, Arizona.

McDonald collapsed and hit her head on the floor after she delivered her second joke: “I’m vaxxed, double vaxxed, boosted … and flu shot and shingle shot and haven’t gotten COVID and Jesus loves me most.”

As soon as she delivered the joke, she just collapsed and hit her head on the floor. Everyone thought at first it was all part of the act, but it was not. She was conscious, but clearly, all was not well. An EMT and a nurse happened to be in the audience … they rushed up on stage to provide first aid.

The 911 call came in as a seizure, but no one really knows yet. An ambulance came and paramedics tended to Heather. Heather tells TMZ she felt somewhat dizzy when she was on stage and then just collapsed.

She says it’s never happened to her before….

The comic went on to share a trio of videos from her hospital bed to her Instagram Story, and began her clips by apologizing for the collapse.

She also reiterated that she was sorry about having to end her show in an early and unplanned manner and that she had ‘never ever fainted in my life.’

McDonald did point out, however, that she would return to perform in Tempe in the near future. It is unclear if she will use that same ignorant joke again…

I guess he didn’t love u the most… jk
