What did we learn from today’s UK briefing?

Today’s government press conference was with Health Secretary Matt Hancock. It was the first time the minister giving the briefing has not been joined by a government scientist.

Here’s what he told us:

People who have had coronavirus can help people currently in hospital by donating their blood plasma, which will contain antibodies. Mr Hancock said he had done so this morning

From 15 June, all hospital visitors and out-patients will have to wear face coverings (not surgical masks)

All hospital staff, whether working in a clinical setting or not, will have to wear a type one or two surgical mask

He implored people not to attend large gatherings, including protests over the killing of George Floyd by police in the US

The R-number (which measures rate of infection) is higher in the North West and South West of England, but remains below 1. The national R number is between 0.7 and 0.9
