“Because we are building up a map, a proper database that the public can access showing the whole thing in real time,” the Prime Minister noted.
Phil then challenged Boris that it might be better if we all have the full information straight away.
To which the PM responded: “No, I agree. Absolutely. And I think one of the great things about the British public is that they can see very clearly what the balance of risk is.
“We can see where this is happening and the rate at which it is spreading. I’m with you and we’re putting it all out there.”
