The Government is rejecting calls to relax the coronavirus lockdown, saying the outbreak remains at a “delicate and dangerous” stage. Ministers are asking people to adjust to what they’re calling “a new normal,” for some time yet.

As the Prime Minister Boris Johnson returns to work, the government says the current restrictions are having a positive effect, with fewer people being treated in hospital.

There remains concern among care providers about testing for staff and residents in care homes in England. The BBC has spoken to more than 200 providers, and three quarters say none of their staff has been screened.
