BRITAIN’S daily coronavirus death toll could be zero in three weeks, according to a top scientist.
Professor Carl Heneghan has based his forecast on current trends, with falling 999 and 111 calls.
He told the Times: “The trend in the data is looking reassuring and there’s no reason it shouldn’t continue. By the end of the month we could be in a position where we are observing no deaths.”
He added: “Community transmission is low, admissions to hospitals are very low.
“We’ve been opening up society and it is reassuring that we’re going in the right direction. If we stay vigilant we should be able to continue opening up society… We’re seeing it across Europe — no bounce-back.”
On Monday, there were no coronavirus deaths recorded in the past 24 hours in London, reports the Daily Star.
However the following day 17 were recorded in the capital.
The UK’s total death toll currently stands at 40,883 as of yesterday.
