Meanwhile, the Government said that, as of 9am on Sunday, there had been a further 54,940 lab-confirmed cases of coronavirus in the UK.

It brings the total number of cases in the UK to 3,072,349.

Health Secretary Matt Hancock said this morning that the NHS needs people to “stay at home”.

He told Sky News’ Sophy Ridge on Sunday programme: “The single biggest thing that anybody can do is to follow the stay at home guidance.

“There are limited exemptions. Only if you can’t work from home and if you need to go out and get shopping or take some exercise.

“But these are highly-limited for a good reason and that’s because the pressure on the NHS is very, very bad and we need to bring the case rate right down.

“So it’s on all of us really, it always has been a big team effort.”

But he said he did not want to criticise the public as “the majority are following the rules”.

He told the programme: “We are as you can see, with the police, enforcing stringently against the minority who don’t follow the rules.

“But you’re right: I don’t want to criticise the public, because the majority of people are following the rules.

“That’s what we want to see and we can see that the amount of people who are staying at home has increased, but we’ve all got to absolutely follow that guidance.”

He added: “The data shows more people are following the lockdown than the November lockdown.”
