British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has said, there are five key tests that we must satisfied before government can consider adjust of the current measures.
In a statement by the Prime Minister, the five key tests are:
- We must be sure that the NHS has sufficient capacity to provide critical care and specialist treatment right across the UK.
- We must see a sustained and consistent fall in deaths.
- We must be sure that the infection rate is falling to manageable levels.
- We must overcome the operational and logistical challenges on testing and PPE with supply able to meet future demand.
- We must make sure that any adjustments to the current measures do not risk a second spike that would overwhelm the NHS.
