Meanwhile, Public Health England (PHE) is to be scrapped and replaced by a new organisation set up specifically to deal with a pandemic, it has been reported.

Health Secretary Matt Hancock will announce this week that the pandemic response work of PHE will be merged with NHS Test and Trace, according to The Sunday Telegraph.

The paper said the new body will be called the Institute for Health Protection and will become “effective” next month, although it will take until next spring to complete.

The Conservative peer and former TalkTalk telcoms boss Baroness Harding, who currently heads Test and Trace, is being tipped to lead the organisation, the paper said.
