A Downing Street official told Playbook that the PM will insist “there’s still a way to go” and urge Brits not to break the rules.

But he will hail the vaccine rollout – revealing that 2million Brits have been vaccinated in the last week alone.

The official said: “This has been a very bleak week and we need everybody to keep sticking to the rules and helping to protect hospitals, which are under the most tremendous pressure.

“We aren’t yet seeing the sharp fall in infections that we had last April and May and we need to keep going.”
