Update from the UK Chief Medical Officers on the UK Alert Level

AN update report issued from the CMO's for England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland on the alert level in the UK that has been published on 19 June 2020, by the UK's Department of Health and Social Care. The joint report says that:- "The Joint Bio Security Centre has recommended that the COVID-19 alert level should move from Level 4 (A COVID-19 epidemic is in general circulation; transmission is high or rising exponentially) to Level 3 (A COVID-19 epidemic is in general circulation). The CMO's for England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland have reviewed the evidence and agree with this recommendation to move to Level 3 across the UK. There has been a steady decrease in cases we have seen in all 4 nations, and this continues. It does not mean that the pandemic is over. The virus is still in general circulation, and localised outbreaks are likely to occur. We have made progress against the virus thanks to the efforts of the public and we need the public to continue to follow the guidelines carefully to ensure this progress continues." This statement was signed by 3 Chief Medical Officers and a Deputy Chief Medical Officer...

Chief Medical Officer for England, Professor Chris Whitty.

Chief Medical Officer for Northern Ireland, Dr Michael McBride.

Chief Medical Officer for Scotland, Dr Gregor Smith.

Deputy Chief Medical Officer for Wales, Dr Chris Jones.

Please remember that the virus is still in "general circulation" but transmission is no longer "high or rising exponentially." Further easing of lockdown restrictions are now expected.
