30,615 people have now died from Coronavirus, an increase of 539 from yesterday’s figures.
86,583 tests were carried out yesterday meaning that the government has missed the 100,000 tests per day target for a fifth day in a row.
The Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab told the Daily Downing Street Press Conference
“The virus is not beaten yet. It remains deadly and infectious. But, because we held firm three weeks ago, we are in a position to start thinking about the next phase. Some changes can confidently be introduced, but others will take time
Raab said that the Prime Minister will set out a “roadmap” on Sunday for moving forward, with conditions for reaching each milestone.
He added that any changes will be “modest, small, incremental and very carefully monitored”.
