Dix said it was his belief there would be no circulating virus "sometime in August".

He also told the Daily Telegraph that he expects everyone in the UK to have been vaccinated at least once by the end of July, by which time "we'll have probably protected the population from all the variants that are known".

"We'll be safe over the coming winter," he added.
