UK cases may hit 100,000 a day, no contingency measures for now, minister says

Britain's Secretary of State for Health and Social Care Javid statement

LONDON (Reuters) – Britain’s COVID-19 infection numbers could rise to 100,000 a day, but the government will not implement its so-called “plan B” contingency measures at this time, health minister Sajid Javid said on Wednesday.

“We’re looking closely at the data, and we won’t be implementing our plan B of contingency measures at this point, but will be staying vigilant, preparing for all eventualities,” he told a news conference.
