PM set to hold COVID-19 briefing later this afternoon

Boris Johnson will hold a COVID-19 briefing later today after England entered lockdown for the second time.

Mr Johnson will be joined at the 5pm Downing Street briefing by Sir Simon Stevens, the chief executive of NHS England.

No new measures are expected to be announced but the pair will reflect on the new restrictions that came into play today.

The prime minister’s appearance will come hours after Chancellor Rishi Sunak announced the furlough scheme will be extended to March.
