Meanwhile, Matt Hancock said that it is important to act on the rising number of cases, despite the number of deaths being low.

He told the Commons: “Of course, there is a lag between people catching the disease and the statistics for new cases, and those who sadly die.

“The second thing is that this rise most recently has been largely, predominantly, not entirely, amongst young people who are much less likely to die.

“The danger is that they will pass it on to others and it will spread more broadly into the community.

“So, it is important to act on these cases even though, thankfully, currently the number who are dying is small.”
