Covid isolation cut from seven to five full days in England, says Javid – video

The health secretary, Sajid Javid, has confirmed that the minimum time people with Covid in England have to spend in self-isolation is to be cut to five full days.

From Monday, people will be able to leave isolation on day six if they tested negative on days five and six, Javid told the Commons.

Later, in a heated exchange with Javid, the shadow health secretary, Wes Streeting, said Boris Johnson was not fit to lick the boots of NHS staff.
