2:23 pm
government said that they aim to have all results from tests either at the centers or people's homes delivered within 24 hours but they haven't hit that consistently yet it was supposed to be rolled out this test trace and isolate program was supposed to start at the same time as a mobile phone up that has now been delayed by you weeks that's parts of the of the tracing and contacting people side of the program and also with hearing from people not just from the opposition labor party here in the u.k. but from dozens of m.p.'s from the ruling conservative party that people's trust in government messaging has been dented severely by the dominant cummings saga he's the chief advisor to boris johnson the prime minister he was seemed to have broken look down guidelines refused to apologize for anything he did he's being backed up solidly by the government for days now even though it's dominating the headlines and prompting thousands of people to contact their m.p.'s saying how angry they are
2:24 pm
that they had to follow the guidelines and he seems not to have done so so all of this is by a tiny it's also been brought forward as i was saying and there are questions about whether there are enough tests going on around the country to really back up that program so how quickly is the u.k. aiming to lift down. fairly quickly now let's not forget next monday june the 1st is when schools are encouraged to reopen by the government some are saying though it will be a week later some have taken the decision on a local or city wide level that they won't open until after the summer holidays it's really according to how local staff in the education system feel they can observe distant seeing and hygiene to the extent that that's possible but at the same time markets are reopening next week and things like showrooms meanwhile
2:25 pm
there's a warning from a group that's setting itself up as an independent scientific advisory group saying that the government's ignoring its own scientists who are known as sage that survives are a group they say the sage of models that once schools reopen the our number the crucial transmission rate will go above one and they're saying that it's not safe according to the government's own scientists for schools to start reopening at the moment mixed pictures about the reopening of across the country but certainly lots of worries and crucially as we were hearing from south korea can the 2nd peak be avoided thank you for that i live in london now hundreds of scientists from around the world are teaming up to share information on coronavirus it's called the covert 1000 m.s. coalition and will be made up of around 500 of the leading mass spectrometer east experts now shared data about how coronavirus f.p.
2:26 pm
is the technique looks at how molecules change in the blood of infected patients the goal is so refined testing and treatment and to figure out why some people respond differently to the virus is kind of detail will be crucial in developing vaccines handy to baron is chairwoman of mass spectrometry and director of the michael baaba center at manchester university she tells us more about how the coalition hopes to help. what we want to do is to find out and ultimately allow doctors to find out that when someone alarms the hospital and they test positive the current virus how those symptoms were developing so this is cool coke gnostic markers we want to find out whether someone is going to just have mild symptoms or is going to develop into a more severe form of infection and if we can do that that will allow them the doctors to give them better treatment and to target the treatment of them so we've been talking for a while and we've been sharing methods and we've been sharing approaches to doing
2:27 pm
things several of us in one something period had our labs shut down and in universities that's been the case and so we've been really using that time to talk to think and to use to think about the best ways of collecting samples and sharing the data so we have there's already been some studies again re studies and what we're trying to do is replication studies at pace as quite unusual science normally where a little competitive only sharon wants we you know got something published what we want to do is work together for that to make sure that we're using same approaches to really help all of us in completely shocked by this pandemic and as a scientist we know that science has the solutions so in some sense it's been a great time to be innocent and people have been extremely receptive to the idea of sharing sharon working together and this is not in the public health threat there
2:28 pm
are other serious diseases for example but you know since we all need work let me less competitive need to start to so these alan will. now while the u.k. continues to practice social distancing one section of society has been struggling with isolation the elderly charities are reporting increased cases of confusion and loneliness sonja gago has a story from london. and often in visit even under social distancing rules brings a welcome break from bubble to james confined to her home she's only allowed visits from care workers and close relatives because of her age group folder is not meant to leave her home and as a wheelchair user she's finding it very difficult when i have my son would come and go no. go shopping. trolley i write my school
