Dr Glover not consulted on testing report

The leading scientist at the Island's Covid-19 testing lab says she was "dissed" by the chief minister at the media conference on Friday 23 October.

In a series of tweets, Dr Rachel Glover has revealed she has not been asked to contribute to a document on the testing regime being prepared for the council of ministers.

In one tweet she wrote, "I sit in a grey area as I'm both a Department of Health and Social Care employee AND a private company director. They need my skills but given I have no voice internally I use twitter to voice my opinion, which is disliked."
