Scientists who have been advising the government during the coronavirus crisis have accused the prime minister of "trashing" the advice they have given to help curb the outbreak.

Members of the Scientific Pandemic Influenza Group on Behaviours (SPI-B) hit out at Boris Johnson, after he backed Dominic Cummings' decision to travel 260 miles to his parents' house in the North East during lockdown.

SPI-B feeds analysis and advice to the scientists on the government's emergency panel SAGE (Scientific Advisory Group for Emergencies).

How Upbeat Vaccine News Fueled a Stock Surge, and an Uproar

  How Upbeat Vaccine News Fueled a Stock Surge, and an Uproar When the biotech company Moderna announced early on Monday morning positive results from a small, preliminary trial of its coronavirus vaccine, the company’s chief medical officer described the news as a “triumphant day for us.” Moderna’s stock price jumped as much as 30 percent. Its announcement helped lift the stock market and was widely reported by news organizations, including The New York Times.

"Be open and honest, we said. Trashed. Respect the public, we said. Trashed Ensure equity, so everyone is treated the same, we said. Trashed. Be consistent we said. Trashed. Make clear 'we are all in it together'. Trashed."

He added: "It is very hard to provide scientific advice to a government which doesn't want to listen to science. I hope, however, that the public will read our papers (publicly available) and continue to make up for this bad government with their own good sense."

"The key thing we need to remember is that the reason for the lockdown is not for the sake of people like Dominic Cummings or the prime minister, it is for our friends and families' sake so the rules are really, really important," he said.

Prof Michie called for Professor Chris Whitty, England's chief medical officer, to give his own briefings independently from the cabinet in the future.

She wrote: "I hope that @CMO_England @uksciencechief & colleagues will in future give their own scientific briefings to the British public unencumbered by distrust of @BorisJohnson & co. Never thought I'd say this but don't want science to be dragged down by association with dishonesty."

The row over Mr Cummings' trip to Durham for childcare reasons in late March erupted on Friday evening following two newspaper investigations.

Number 10 said the aide travelled to be near his family in the North East, as he feared there would be no one to look after his four-year-old son if he and his wife became ill with coronavirus at the same time.

Despite widespread calls for Mr Cummings' sacking, the prime minister has stuck by him, saying during a press briefing on Sunday he had acted with "integrity".

Stay at home as much as possible to stop coronavirus spreading - here is the latest government guidance. If you think you have the virus, don't go to the GP or hospital, stay indoors and get advice online. Only call NHS 111 if you cannot cope with your symptoms at home; your condition gets worse; or your symptoms do not get better after seven days. In parts of Wales where 111 isn't available, call NHS Direct on 0845 46 47. In Scotland, anyone with symptoms is advised to self-isolate for seven days. In Northern Ireland, call your GP.
