Professor Mark Woolhouse, a member of the Sage scientific advisory group, said a third wave was "entirely possible". “That’s entirely possible, a scenario I mentioned earlier does actually include this possibility," the epidemiologist told BBC's Andrew Marr. "This is just another demo that lockdown doesn’t solve the problem, it defers it. That is why we need some kind of cavalry on the horizon or alternatively if we think that vaccine is not going to be available in six months, or 12 months or two years or whenever it may be, that we do need alternatives." He warned "mass testing" could be one of few alternatives to a vaccine if the country is to avoid a third spike.

It comes after Prime Minister Boris Johnson introduced a raft of new restrictions to tackle the UK's "inevitable" second wave of coronavirus, with surging case rates plunging 17 million Britons into local lockdown. Professor Mark Woolhouse warned of an 'entirely possible' third wave of coronavirus (BBC) Turning to the case of Sweden, which has escaped a high cases and death toll despite having no lockdown with minimal restrictions, he added: “It is possible to turn an epidemic around without a strictly enforced lockdown.

. We are in this for the long-term and the measures have to be ones we can live with.” “There isn’t a proven scientific basis for any of this, when we introduced lockdown in the first instance that was an unproven intervention," he went on.

"Because this is a new challenge, we’re having to use interventions that we’ve never tried before - all of this is very much ad hoc interventions [and] we’re learning as we go.” But Culture Secretary Oliver Dowden insisted there was "definitely science" behind the new 10pm curfew on hospitality venues, which is entering its fourth day.
