UK Health Security Agency Nid oedd gan y wybodaeth y gofynnwyd amdani.

Dear UK Health Security Agency,

In a recent press inquiry to UKHSA about whose responsibility it is to complete Day 2 tests by travellers arriving in the UK, I was informed by a UKHSA spokesperson that "Passengers must upload a photo of their LFD (Lateral Flow Device) test to verify results as soon as possible, with free confirmatory NHS PCRs for any positive cases. If a photo of the LFD result is not uploaded, the UK government will be alerted, the traveller will be registered as non-compliant and could be fined."

Can you please tell me how many people the UKHSA has registered as being non-compliant in completing their Day 2 travel test, and how many people have been fined as a result?

Yours faithfully,

John Lubbock
