BORIS Johnson has said he ‘hopes’ for a vaccine after top government chiefs warned we may never discover one.
The Chief Scientific Adviser Patrick Vallance today pointed out the SARS virusis still wihtout one.
It comes amid the new lockdown plan which could see hotels reopened by July, as well as a number of Brits return to work and children return to school in a few months.
The PM was grilled last night along with Professor Chris Whitty and Scientific Adviser Mr Vallance.
When asked about the possibility of a vaccine, the trio remained positive but sombre – with the PM saying he ‘hoped’ for one soon and insisting ‘good things’ were happening at various research centres across the UK.
This comes as deaths in the UK increased to 32,065 after 210 more deaths were recorded today – the lowest daily rise in six weeks.
