Professor Dame Angela McLean, chief scientific adviser at the Ministry of Defence, told the Science and Technology Committee: “Things are all moving in the right direction: infections are falling, the number of cases are falling, hospitalisations and deaths.

“But we still stand with a high number of infections.

“There were about 20,000 people in hospital earlier this week. By comparison, in early May there were about 15,000 patients but there’s still a lot of people in hospital.

“I share everybody’s optimism about how fantastic this vaccine is. But I would say we need to be optimistic and cautious, there’s still a lot of infected people out there.”
