UK lockdown could last 6 months, warns senior health official

Mar 30, 2020 13:30 IST

The lockdown in the UK to try to slow the spread of coronavirus could go on for six months and the country may not return to its normal way of life until the autumn, according to a key government doctor. Deputy chief medical officer for England, Dr Jenny Harries, said at Downing Street’s daily press conference, that the effectiveness of the current restrictions would be reviewed at the end of the original three-week period. She added that lifting lockdown too soon could risk second wave of infection.
