Calls for Lateral flow testing to be made easier for visually impaired Islanders

A Jersey charity says coronavirus testing in the island needs to be made easier for those who are visually impaired.

EYECAN says lateral flow tests can be difficult for people with sight issues to do on their own.

Visually impaired islanders are currently being excluded from events due to many organisers requiring people to take tests beforehand.

Additionally, some islanders have reported getting very faint lines on their tests, making positive results harder to read.

Watch the full interview above.
