The government will not be implementing its 'Plan B' for dealing with coronavirus this winter, despite rising cases, the Health Secretary has said.

Sajid Javid said in a press conference on Wednesday: "This pandemic is not over … we'll be staying vigilant, preparing for all eventualities, while strengthening our vital defences.".
