We urgently need a public communication campaign about what rapid tests actually tell you. As I understand, they are good for telling if your coughing and fever is covid, or if you were infectious a few days ago. Do not tell a group of people they are now safe to socialise.

And if I'm wrong about this, please let me know. This is my point. We are being told to take personal responsibility with these tests, which we can't get access to and aren't being told how to properly use.

Even if everyone were using RATs before socialising every time, the chart shows why it wouldn't do much to slow the spread without very substantial behaviour change, including much less frequent socialising, smaller numbers, outside, etc. That's not the message we are hearing.
