A senior UK health chief said the countries could be in lockdown for another six months in order to prevent the coronavirus from coming back.

Deputy chief medical officer, Dr. Jenny Harries, said some, but not all, of the dramatic measures imposed this week, could last until September 2020.
It comes as one of the government’s top coronavirus advisors admitted the UK’s epidemic will get worse before it gets better but the peak of it could pass by Easter.
Professor Neil Ferguson said that if the current nationwide lockdown works, the demand for intensive care units should peak within two or three weeks.

The virus expert, from Imperial College London, was one of the authors behind a study that may have saved Britain after warning the Government its plan could kill thousands of people. He later caught the virus himself and recovered.
