Heathrow Airport Launches Rapid Result Coronavirus Test for Passengers

Passengers flying from London Heathrow Airport to Italy and Hong Kong will now be able to get a coronavirus test at the airport with results in just one hour. Both countries require travelers from the U.K. to provide a negative test result on arrival.
