Boris warned of a tough winter for us all but said the nation will be in a different place by spring.

And he hopes that scientific progress – including testing capacity and a potential vaccine – will help ease restrictions.

He told the BBC’s Andrew Marr: “In the course of the next few weeks the scientific equation will change.

“We’ll start to see progress on vaccines and testing that will allow us to change the way we do things.”

The Prime Minister said he “appreciated the fatigue” Brits are facing under current restrictions, but warned the road ahead will continue to be bumpy.

He said: “This is going to be bumpy through to Christmas. It may even be bumpy beyond but this is the only way to do it.”

The PM went on to preempt the situation next year, suggesting the nation will be better equipped to face the virus as the months go on.

He said the government were working “flat out” to try to make things easier for Brits by Christmas.

“It is still very possible that there are bumpy, bumpy days ahead,” he said.

“It could be a very tough winter for all of us but by the spring, things will be radically different and we’ll be in a different world.

“There are different treatments now available that weren’t a few months ago and that’s changed the equation.”

It comes after cases in the UK soared by 12,872 yesterday, with the number of infections almost doubling the previous daily record of 7,143.

Covid fatalities across all settings also went up by 49, bringing the overall death toll in Britain to 42,317.
