Professor Christina Pagel was interviewed by BBC News to discuss the pressure on the NHS, particularly in London, and what else the government should be doing to reduce transmission.

In this clip she explains the important of supporting people to isolate, particularly key workers and those low incomes or in overcrowded housing.
