The two experts who have guided the government’s response to coronavirus were not asked to approve the controversial new “stay alert” message, the Guardian has learned.

Neither Prof Chris Whitty, the government’s chief medical officer, nor Sir Patrick Vallance, its chief scientific adviser, were asked to sign off on dropping the “stay at home” advice before Boris Johnson unveiled the new strategy last night.
