The UK-wide coronavirus lockdown will be reviewed after Easter following three weeks of national social distancing, the medical director of Public Health England has said.
Speaking at the daily Downing Street press conference, Professor Yvonne Doyle said the Government was closely monitoring modelling on the spread of the virus and would undertake a review after April 12.
Alok Sharma, the Business Secretary, said ministers had to be careful not to cause a "dangerous second peak" by ending measures too soon.
The briefing came as the coronavirus death toll rose by 563 to 2,352 in total, the biggest day-on-day increase in the country since the pandemic began.
The Department for Health said 29,474 people have tested positive for coronavirus in the UK - an increase of 4,324 from yesterday.
