After recommendations by the Joint Biosecurity Centre, the UK-wide COVID-19 Alert Level has been reduced from four to three. At level three, the virus is considered to be "in general circulation," which may lead to the further relaxing of restrictions.
Health Secretary Matt Hancock said earlier today this was "a big moment for the country," and provided evidence that the government's lockdown and easing strategies were working.
Despite the change in Alert Level, Chief Medical Officers stress that the "pandemic is not over," and that "localised outbreaks are still likely to occur."
