When to end the UK lockdown

Is it time to end the UK lockdown?

Not yet, according to the latest data on new cases of covid-19.

We first need more barriers to stop the virus spreading, to get the numbers of new cases down:
- more masks, testing, tracing, and isolating.

The chart was generated by the online chart-drawing facility at https://www.iancampbell.co.uk/covid-19.php. Up-to-date charts can be obtained from there.

The data comes from the Johns Hopkins Hospital database [1].
