A senior Government scientist told The Telegraph the models have “some big caveats” which impact their predictions.
They told the outlet: “A lot depends on seasonality as well so it may well be that it’s more like autumn than summer.
“Is that going to be affected by what’s happening in Europe? Well, possibly in the sense that if you get lots of travel coming back and forth that might increase it.
“I think that the expectation is that there will be further waves, but they won’t be as big as the ones that we’ve had, unless things go badly wrong.
“Timing, I think it’s more likely to be autumn than summer, but we’ll see.”
