“But before we can ease the existing restrictions we must ensure the government’s five tests are met - that the number of cases are falling, that death rates are declining, that the NHS has what it needs, and that measures are in place to stop a second peak overwhelming the NHS.”
Mr Gove also revealed that new “test, track and trace procedures” would be piloted on the Isle of Wight soon, with a view to having them in place more widely later this month.
Regional coronavirus data is expected later today.
