Breaking News ! The Government's Chief Medical Officer is allegedly pushing for another national lockdown due to the spread of coronavirus, an expert has claimed. Ex-WHO expert Anthony Costello went to social media to share his rumour that Mr Whitty is advising the Government to lockdown down the country once more. He said: "I’m hearing from a well-connected person that government now thinks, in absence of testing, there are 38,000 infections per day. "Chris Whitty is advising PM for a two week national lockdown." Mr Costello sits on the independent SAGE panel, which is a different group to the Government's Scientific Advisory Group for Emergencies (SAGE). But Boris Johnson said yesterday a second coronavirus lockdown would be "disastrous" for the the UK economy, reports the Mirror. Chief Medical Officer Chris Whitty Asked whether the country could afford a second full lockdown under questioning from MPs at the Commons Liaison Committee, the PM said: "I don't want a second national lockdown - I think it would be completely wrong for this country and we are going to do everything in our power to prevent it.

. "So when I see people arguing against the rule of six or saying that the Government is coming in too hard on individual liberties and so on - I totally understand that and I sympathise with that, but we must, must defeat this disease." The number of UK coronavirus cases soared by almost 4,000 yesterday in the highest daily rise since the start of May. But people were turned away from walk-in centres where massive queues formed and thousands struggled to book a slot for a test. Coronavirus cases have also been reported in hundreds of schools in England and Wales, with parents unable to get their kids tested and having to keep them home to self-isolate. Mirror Online has contacted Downing Street and the Department of Health and Social Care for comment.
