'Hysterical' Health Secretary warns 'hundreds of thousands' of lives are at risk if we don't follow new rules - despite more evidence second wave is slowing as daily cases increase by just 4pc in a week to 6,914

Matt Hancock today warned that 'hundreds of thousands' of Britons could die from Covid-19, if ministers ease all the restrictions and let the vicious disease 'rip' through the country once again.

The Health Secretary admitted it was 'perfectly reasonable' to argue No10 should drop all the measures, including the hotly-contested 10pm curfew and Rule of Six, in favour of a Swedish-style approach to the pandemic, which opted against a draconian lockdown in the spring.

But in a blunt response, he added: 'I just think the hundreds of thousands of deaths that would follow is not a price that anyone should pay.'
