The latest COVID-19 data supports Chris Whitty saying the country is near the limit of lifting lockdowns.

The latest COVID-19 data shows that the number of cases decreased in the UK in July compared to previous months' cases.

The latest COVID-19 data shows that the number of cases decreased in the UK in July compared to previous months' cases. In the Downing Street press conference on July 31, 2020, professor Chris Whitty, the UK's chief medical adviser, warned that the UK has potentially reached a limit for how much of society can be opened up. He said that the data from the Office for National Statistics and other data showed that they have probably reached near the limit or the limits of what they can do in terms of opening up society. Meanwhile, the UK's COVID-19 cases decreased in July compared to previous months. Further, professor Whitty said these would be difficult trade-offs, but it was essential to be realistic, and the idea of open up everything and keep the virus under control is wrong. Moreover, the Scientific Advisory Group for Emergencies said that the government might need to change measures at the end of the summer to be able to control infections proceeding with the planned reopening of schools.
