UK cases ‘could be moving in the right direction’


The number of coronavirus cases in the UK “could be moving in the right direction”, the government’s chief scientific adviser has said.

Speaking about the number of new cases, Sir Patrick said: “It is possible that we’re beginning to see… change in terms of the curve flattening a little bit.

“We won’t know that for sure until a week or so. But what we’re not seeing is an acceleration.”
