The UK‘s coronavirus strategy is proving to be effective according to Deputy Chief Medical Officer, Jenny Harries. Ms Harries told the daily briefing that the advice to social distance and self-isolate that brought some “helpful movement” to the slope of the epidemic curve. The expert had been confronted about a precise time for when the country would hit the peak of the outbreak.
Ms Harries continued: “What we’ll be looking for is a change in the slope.
“Rather than there being a very steep curve upwards, we will be looking for it to be a gentler slope.

“People have been really cooperative and I think in the last few days the public have really understood that this is something very serious.”
