The government's chief scientific advisor warned the situation with COVID-19 in the UK is unpredictable
Up to 90,000 people a day are being infected with COVID-19 in England, the government’s chief scientific adviser has warned.
In a vociferous speech, Sir Desmond Swayne attacked Sir Patrick Vallance and Prof Chris Whitty for their dire warnings about the resurgence of the coronavirus.
Sir Patrick Vallance has become the latest top scientist to warn COVID-19 will probably be a long-term feature of people’s lives.
Sir Patrick Vallance emphasised the importance of abiding by the distancing guidelines set out by supermarkets and other essential shops during lockdown.
The UK has suffered its highest daily coronavirus death toll so far – but other stats have suggested the situation may be starting to improve.
