LONDON (Reuters) - British government emergency response scientists published the evidence on their understanding of COVID-19 evolution on Friday.

“The Scientific Advisory Group for Emergencies (SAGE) has been providing ministers and officials with free and frank advice throughout,” they said.

“This is an incredibly fast-moving, developing situation and as part of our collective efforts to give the clearest and most reliable scientific advice, SAGE has and continues to draw upon a huge range of experts and a huge range of evidence,” said Patrick Vallance, the British government’s chief scientific adviser.
