Boris Johnson tells MPs that the reopening of society and the UK economy should go ahead with “utmost caution”.
He says the R rate – which measures the spread of infection has fallen from between 2.6 and 2.8 in April to between 0.5 and 0.9 now.
He says making sure the disease does not spread and reopening the economy will be a “supremely difficult balance to strike”.
He adds that some parts of the UK may need to stay in “full lockdown” longer than others – but this should be short term.
