Boris Johnson warned COVID-19 outbreak to ‘revert back to March’ levels once school open

Prof Chris Bonnell, who contributed to the research, said: “Our findings suggests that it might be possible [to avoid] a secondary epidemic wave in the UK, if enough people with symptomatic infection can be diagnosed and their contacts traced and effectively isolated,” he said.

“Reopening schools fully in September, alongside reopening workplaces in society, without an effective test, trace, isolating (TTI) strategy could result in a second wave of infections between two and 2.3 times the size of the original wave.

“This is a scenario with model, not a prediction of what is going to happen. It all depends on the other measures and the level of TTI coverage.

“Currently, TTI is not achieving the levels that we modelled. Looking at the NHS reports from the TTI system, it looks like it’s about 50% coverage.”
