Meanwhile, the chair of the Advisory Group on New and Emerging Respiratory Virus Threats has urged the government to exercise caution before the lockdown is significantly eased.
Professor Peter Horby told Times Radio: “The buzz phrase really needs to be caution.
“The modeling, which is pretty good now, shows that we can expect some kind of rebound. It’s not clear when or how big it will be, but I think there will inevitably be a small rebound in the number of cases in where things are relaxed.
“I think we can be happy and enjoy the freedoms, but we still have to realize that there are still large numbers of people who have not been infected or vaccinated and therefore they are at risk.”
