Professor Adam Finn, from the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI), told Sky News: "I've been consistent over the weekend in saying that I am very concerned that mixing people together at this particular point in time, given the uncertainties about the transmissibility of the new variant, is really actually quite risky. "Certainly on a personal level, although I don't influence policy on this in any way, I'm advising my family and friends to continue to be very careful about making contact with each other until we're clearer about just what's going to happen with this variant over the next two or three weeks."
