Britain faces a ‘human disaster’ unless ministers impose ‘stricter’ rules, one of the Government’s top scientific advisers has warned.

Professor Robert West, who is part of SAGE, said the Government’s current methods were unlikely to contain the spread of COVID-19. He argued the UK needs to bolster social distancing rules and build testing strategies similar to ones seen in Asia.

Professor West, a psychologist, added: ‘It sounds expensive but the alternative could well be a catastrophic collapse in confidence in the country’s ability to control the virus and the economic, human and social disaster that would follow.’

England is likely heading for a New Year Lockdown after Chief Scientific Adviser Patrick Vallance said measures would ‘need to be increased’ last night.

It is understood Chief Medical Officer Chris Whitty has warned the Prime Minister the number of patients in hospital with COVID-19 is set to match the April peak by New Year’s Eve.
