Many scientific advisers have raised concern over the early relaxation of the country`s coronavirus lockdown restrictions.

The gradual easing out of the lockdown restrictions which was recently announced by the UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson has seen a number of outdoor activities resume.

According to Professor John Edmunds, the easing of the lockdown measures is a political decision. He also mentioned that most experts would prefer to see a decline in Covid-19 infections first before the relaxation of the restrictions. Sir Jeremy Farrar suggested that the National Health Service (NHS) test and trace system has to be “fully working”.

Professor Edmunds said: “If we had incidence at a lower level, even if the … level went up a bit, we wouldn’t be in a position where we were overwhelming the health service.

“I think at the moment with relatively high incidence, relaxing the measures and with an untested track and trace system, I think we are taking some risk here. Even if that risk doesn’t play out and we keep the incidence flat, we’re keeping it flat at quite a high level,”​he added.

People from different households will be allowed to meet outside from Monday. A number of schools in England will also be able to reopen for some pupils.

A top scientist warned the ministers saying that the Prime Minister`s decision to ease out lockdown restrictions carries “some risk” as the daily figures of new coronavirus cases remains “relatively high ”.

In April, the Scientific Advisory Group for Emergencies (Sage) warned the government that if non-essential shops resume operation it was “likely” the infection rate would rise above one.

People in the UK have been urged by the police to avoid breaking the social distancing rules this weekend in order to keep themselves and others safe.
