Matt Hancock says young people account for a large number of new Covid-19 cases

Health Secretary Matt Hancock said that the daily rise in cases of coronavirus on Sunday was “concerning”, after Government figures show there were a further 2,988 lab-confirmed cases of coronavirus in the UK as of 9am. This brought the total number of confirmed cases in the UK to 347,152. Speaking on LBC, he appealed to younger people to stick to social distancing measures, saying that under-25s, particularly those aged 17 to 21, accounted for a large number of positive coronavirus cases.
