As the COVID-19 emergency continues, the question haunting Cabinet Ministers is: how does Britain get out of lockdown? FTI Consulting considers the three big lessons Downing Street has learnt as it battles the coronavirus outbreak – and how its experience so far will shape its handling of what may prove to be the defining issue of this crisis: when and how to lift restrictions.

Downing Street is grappling with demands for protective equipment, pressures in the care system, a virus that has not yet peaked and a death rate which currently looks on course to be one of the worst in Europe. But the history books may yet see the current lockdown as the easy part. The Government has had to grow up fast in this crisis and has learnt important lessons on the way as it faces the next, more difficult phase of the COVID-19 pandemic.
