The UK’s coronavirus alert level has been downgraded from four to three, its chief medical officers have said.

Under level three, the virus is considered to be “in general circulation” and there could be a “gradual relaxation of restrictions”.

Previously transmission was considered to be “high or rising exponentially”.

Health Secretary Matt Hancock said the change was “a big moment for the country” and showed that the government’s plan was working.

The decision to reduce the alert level followed a recommendation by the Joint Biosecurity Centre, the chief medical officers for England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland said.
