LONDON (Reuters) - Britain has approached Amazon and other companies about using their services to step up the delivery of coronavirus tests to frontline health workers, the Financial Times reported on Monday.

The newspaper said businesses with established delivery networks could be used to deliver tests to medical workers, and to the general public at a later stage.

The government has said it is trying to step up the delivery of tests to health workers so they know when they can and cannot work.
