The UK’s Chief Scientific Adviser, Sir Patrick Vallance, today said the outcome of the coronavirus pandemic in the UK has “not been good.”

Sir Patrick told the Science and Technology Committee there will be “many factors” that determine how well countries respond to the outbreak.

He said: “As (chief medical officer Professor) Chris Whitty has said before, it’s very difficult to know where we stand at the moment.

“It’s clear that the outcome has not been good in the UK, I think you can be absolutely clear about that.

“There are many factors that are going to play in this as we look and say, ‘what is it that makes some countries having done worse than others?’, and there will be decisions made that will turn out not to have been the right decisions at the time.”
