What did we study from today’s United kingdom briefing?
Today’s government press conference was brought by Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab. He was became a member of by Mister Ian Gemstone, chief statistician in the office for National Statistics, and Dr Jenny Harries, the deputy chief medical officer.
This is what they told us:
The R-rate, the speed of infection, is below one – approximately .5 and .9 – meaning typically each individual using the virus passes it onto less than a single body else. This really is greater compared to last estimate and it is driven through the epidemic in care homes.
The lockdown rules aren’t altering today. Any changes to social distancing and lockdown measures is going to be limited and thoroughly monitored to guarantee the R-rate doesn’t rise. We’ll get a lot of the government’s plans in the pm on Sunday. Abandoning social distancing too rapidly would result in a second peak.
There is a technical hitch over the past weekend which saw testing figures fall but it’s been resolved.
Limitations around the border, for instance at airports, will come in the end.
