BORIS Johnson will give a rare joint coronavirus press conference today with Chris Whitty and Patrick Vallance for the first time in weeks.
The Prime Minister will deliver another update on the second wave now gripping Britain as fears grow over even stricter national measures to come.
It comes as areas of England, including Newcastle, were given even tighter coronavirus restrictions, making it illegal to meet with people not in your household.
It is not expected that Boris will announce further national restrictions, but he will address the skyrocketing infection numbers amid fears of a second national lockdown.
