UK is ‘Past The Peak’ of its coronavirus outbreak declares Boris Johnson

"We have come through the peak — or rather, we've come under what could have been a vast peak, as though we've been going through some huge Alpine tunnel and we can now see the sunlight and the pasture ahead of us," he said. He also emphasized the need to prevent the risk of a second wave.

There was no mention of any immediate plans to ease the social distancing restrictions but suggested he will come up with a comprehensive plan next week. The plan will cover areas like how to restart the economy, travel to work, reopen schools, and other options.

The coronavirus has taken the lives of almost 26,771 in the UK, and it is highly important to keep the transmission rates low before the country reopens. Use of facemasks in public after lockdowns will be very useful, said the British prime minister. His government has faced a lot of criticism over handling the coronavirus crisis like delaying the lockdown, slowing the introduction of mass testing, and handling the shortage of PPE to hospitals. The country has now Europe’s second-highest COVID-19 death toll.

For the availability of critical protective and life saving supplies

The country has ramped up its testing capabilities with more than 81,000 coronavirus tests were carried out on Wednesday, which still is short of the target of 100,000 by the end of April.

A lot of questions are raised about the timeframe for easing the lockdown measures and how it will be done. Parents want to know when the schools will be reopened.

The prime Minister added that the public has been very sensible in following the rules, and he will make sure the economy bounces back strongly.
