Slow unlocking at the right time and unprecedented vaccine coverage key to avoiding resurgence, scientists say
The UK’s coronavirus vaccination programme passed a milestone this week, with 10m first doses administered. The rate of jabs is averaging more than 400,000 a day and the government is on course to meet its target of giving first doses to the 15 million most vulnerable people by mid-February.
But scientists say that unprecedented vaccine coverage and staged unlocking at the right time are crucial to avoid a devastating resurgence. So, season by season, how might 2020 look?
