He says levels of Covid transmission in the UK are “concerning” as he leaves the advisory group.

Sir Jeremy said his focus now had to be on Wellcome, adding: “This includes supporting the international research effort to end the pandemic, ensuring the world is better prepared for inevitable future infectious disease threats, and making the case so the full potential of science is realised to inform and drive change against all the urgent health threats we face globally.”
