Watch the government's coronavirus daily public briefing led by Health Secretary Matt Hancock - the feed will appear here once it begins.
Today's press conference comes as the UK's R rate - the number of people one person with coronavirus is likely to pass the disease on to - rose to between 0.7 and 1.
This is a change from 0.5 to 0.9 last week and follows the government's decision to gently relax some lockdown measures this week.
Meanwhile, the UK's Covid-19 death toll rose by 384 to 33,998 on Friday leaving it comfortably the worst-hit country in Europe so far, according to official figures.
