  • The risk of a second peak in coronavirus will go up “sharply” if people do not follow guidelines when pubs reopen this weekend, the chief medical officer has cautioned.

    Echoing the prime minister’s warnings, Chris Whitty said Covid-19 is going to be in the UK for a “very, very long time.”

    As such, Boris Johnson warned local lockdowns will be a “feature of our lives for some time to come” as he urged people to act responsibly when the hospitality industry opens for the first time in three months.

    He said the UK must “move away from blanket national measures to targeted local measures”.

    “Instead of locking down the whole country, we will lock down specific premises, or local areas where the virus is spreading.”
