Doctor calls unlocking plan ‘irresponsible’ amid warnings of 200 daily deaths

A senior doctor has launched a blistering attack on Boris Johnson’s plan to ease social-distancing measures next week.

Cases are rising across the country and expected to spike sharply in coming weeks as people return to offices and nightclubs reopen.

Government modelling released shortly after the PM’s announcement forecasts there could be up to 2,000 admissions and 200 deaths a day by mid-August.
