The government’s chief scientific adviser gave a stark warning today that the UK could have up to 50,000 new daily coronavirus cases by mid-October.
Professor Chris Whitty warned that the UK public must take collective responsibility for combating the spread of COVID-19.
Britons were urged to reduce the risk, isolate the virus, break social links and support the science, as part of the government’s four-part plan.
