The Telegraph published this video item, entitled “In full: Health Secretary Matt Hancock says lockdown has brought the virus ‘back under control'” – below is their description.
Lockdown has brought the virus “back under control,” Health Secretary Matt Hancock said today, as he announced a wider community testing programme.
Mr Hancock told the Downing Street press conference that cases have dropped by 30 per cent in England in the last week.
“This is clearly good news. It shows that the national restrictions have been successful,” he said.
“And what this means in practice is that through everyone’s actions in respecting the national lockdown, and through everything that people have sacrificed, we’ve reduced pressures on the NHS, we’ve brought down the number of coronavirus cases, we’ve got this virus back under control.”
