UK behind most European states in tackling coronavirus, says EU agency | The Guardian |

The head of the EU's agency for disease control has warned that the UK is one of five European countries failing to reduce active coronavirus infections, despite Boris Johnson's claims of success.

Dr. Andrea Ammon, the director of the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC), suggested that the UK had yet to progress as far as the majority of European countries in tackling the disease.

In evidence to the European parliament's committee on public health, Ammon said Europe as a whole appeared to have passed the peak of infections on Saturday, with only Bulgaria still experiencing an increase in cases of infection.

But she told MEPs that the UK, along with Poland, Romania and Sweden, stood out as showing "no substantial changes in the last 14 days".
