The number of confirmed cases of Covid 19 at 1,570, and the number of daily deaths at 111 are the lowest they have been since the start of the lockdown.
The Health Secretary Matt Hancock said at the Daily Press Conference that the government has the capacity now to carry out 206,444 tests per day meaning that anyone that needs a test can get one, he added.
Responding to questions from journalists on the contact and tracing system which was up and running from last week he said that people being contacted are responding positively when being asked to self-isolate.
There are 7,500 clinicians in the system, he says. That means six for every new cases and the number of contacts people have is lower than expected.
