Reports have been found about ministers claiming about a second wave of coronavirus. They are considering offering personal risk rating to people aged between 50 to 70.

This proposal is an alternative to a full lockdown. The intention of this measure is to force the aged and the vulnerable members of the public to shield themselves. The identification of vulnerable members had been done in March.

While there are speculations of reopening of schools in September, experts are suggesting closing of bars and pubs as a trade-off.
