Lifting lockdown must be handled better this time round to avoid a surge in Covid that could overwhelm the NHS, doctors say.

The British Medical Association has published a blueprint for how it thinks England should proceed with any easing.

It includes replacing the “rule of six” with a two-households restriction to reduce social mixing and banning travel between different local lockdown tiers.

Government has yet to say if or exactly how England will exit on 2 December.

It will decide next week, based on whether cases have fallen enough and how much strain hospitals are under.
