Boris Johnson is to hold a No 10 press conference at 5pm on Monday February 3, Downing Street has said.
The Prime Minister’s televised statement will unveil the progress of the coronavirus crisis and reflect on the death of Captain Tom Moore.
Boris Johnson has urged people across the country to join in a national clap for Captain Sir Tom Moore at 6pm today.
England remains in lockdown restrictions and measures with little hope of them being relieved upon the first review on February 15.
But the PM will be joined by key advisors and chief medical experts for the briefing.
Last Friday, we saw him deliver the address alongside Chief Scientific Advisor – Patrick Vallance – and Chief Medical Officer, Chris Whitty.
The press briefing will be available to watch on the BBC and ITV, as well as via YouTube channels like Sky News.
Prime Minister Boris Johnson said Captain Sir Tom Moore dedicated his life to serving others, and encouraged people to join in a “national clap” in memory of him.
Mr Johnson told the Commons: “We all now have the opportunity to show our appreciation for him and all that he stood for and believed in.
“That is why I encourage everyone to join in a national clap for Captain Tom and all those health workers for whom he raised money at 6pm this evening.”
