Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab hosts today’s Covid-19 briefing as government experts have been advised to lift the lockdown "very gradually" to avoid risking a rise in infection rate and losing public trust.
A paper considered by the Government's scientific advisory group Sage warns that having to reintroduce restrictions in a bid to control a second peak would be likely seen as "a serious failure of policy and trust in public health advice will be lost, leading to lower adherence to advice to restrict or to resume activity".
Speaking to the Health Committee today, Sir Patrick Vallance warned that the threat of a second peak was "very real".
He said: "I can tell you that a second peak is something that is very real, that you need to watch out for, and you can see it in other countries."
