In this article, Oxford University establish that the Innova test inuse at Liverpool has a specificity of 99.68%, with 0.32% false positives.

And in this article, the bbc says that the first 90,000 tests in Liverpool had 336 hits, only marginally more than the amount expected from a population with no virus present given the 0.32% false positives.

These two facts suggest that Liverpool is now largely free of the virus? If so, I request the government to release Liverpool from lockdown.
