To ask Her Majesty's Government, further to the Written Answer by Lord Bethell on 20 August (HL7375), whether they will now answer the question put, namely, what is their assessment of how much the increase in daily reported COVID-19 cases can be attributed (1) to increased testing, and (2) to changes in natural prevalence.

The increase in the number of cases over the past few weeks, affecting particularly young age groups, is not accounted by an increase in testing and indicated a real increase in incidence.
