COVID -19: How close are we to an exit out of lockdown?

Latest figures show the UK’s R number – which shows the rate of Coronavirus transmission – has fallen below 1 for the first time since July.

It’s now between 0.7 and 0.9, which suggests the epidemic in the UK is shrinking.

Sky’s Roland Manthorpe looks at how close an exit route out of lockdown actually is.
