Justice Secretary Robert Buckland has admitted to Sky News that the government prioritised the NHS over care homes.
He said: "We needed to make a choice about testing: we did decide to focus upon the NHS."
In the daily coronavirus briefing, Professor Stephen Powis, the national medical director for NHS England, defended criticisms that untested COVID-19 patients were discharged into care homes, saying medical staff would not have discharged patients if their treatment was incomplete or if it was unsafe to do so.
