Everyone in the UK must take on the “big burden” of preventing a second wave of coronavirus , a government minister has said, as Caerphilly in south Wales prepared to be placed under local lockdown and stricter measures were extended in Scotland.
Robert Jenrick, the housing and communities secretary, echoed claims by the deputy medical officer, Prof Jonathan Van-Tam, who warned the UK will face “a bumpy ride over the next few months” if people don’t take the virus seriously.
