Chief medical officer Chris Whitty admitted that despite the Government choosing to relax current coronavirus measures, he still has big fears for the UK’s future. During the Tuesday coronavirus briefing, Boris Johnson reiterated that multiple establishments would be allowed to reopen on July 4th. He insisted this would help jump-start the economy as Britons are able to visit pubs, restaurants, outdoor gyms, museums, cinemas and theatres.
Mr Whitty claimed that despite the progress the UK has made there were still areas that concerned him for the future.
Mr Whitty said: “Test and trace is already doing a lot and that will be having an impact on infections.
“The biggest thing that I worry about is that people don’t report that they have got symptoms, that they don’t get a test.
“And if someone is contacted by the NHS test and trace, I am worried they won’t engage properly with that process.”
