Amid concerns of increasing support for Scottish independence, Health Secretary Matt Hancock insisted the “UK is stronger together in the fight against” coronavirus. He told the Downing Street press conference that the Scottish Ambulance Service put out an appeal for extra help over the weekend and other nations “stepped forward”. “Our health systems across the UK routinely work closely together offering support when it’s needed and from vaccines to ambulance services we are stronger together. And the UK is stronger together in the fight against this pandemic,” Mr Hancock said during a Downing Street press conference. He said there are “early signs that the actions we are taking are working”, with the rise in case numbers slowing and falling in some areas such as London and Scotland.
