Coronavirus live news: new UK lockdown rules needed sooner rather than later, says former adviser; more protests in Melbourne

Right now we are at about the levels of infection we were seeing in this country in late February.

If we leave it another two to four weeks we will be back at levels we were seeing more like mid-March. That’s clearly going to cause deaths because people will be hospitalised.

I think some additional measures are likely to be needed sooner rather than later.

We have in some sense a perfect storm right now of people, as they have been told to, getting back to normal – schools reopening, a surge in cases – so therefore the testing system is under strain.

So unfortunately we do have to roll the relaxation of measures back a little bit and get contacts down in the population.
