"People have relaxed too much." That's the message from England's deputy chief medical officer, as coronavirus case numbers continue to increase sharply. Those words were echoed by a second senior government scientific adviser from the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine. Cases are increasing significantly and the UK is heading towards a "risky period".
Both experts accept that hospital admissions and deaths remain very low and, so far, the surge in infections is predominantly among the young and less vulnerable. However, they also believe there's been a significant and concerning change across the country in recent days that, unless people alter their behaviour, could mean things rapidly change. The scientists' warnings come as more parts of the UK are facing local restrictions and stricter rules on home visits. Meanwhile, holidaymakers on seven Greek islands are facing a rush to get back to England in time to avoid quarantine.
