- Premier is expected to introduce the latest thinking on social restrictions today
- Sources from the government said he will make progress in bringing the virus under control
- He will also level with audience levels about reducing lockdown measures.
- No10 plays off any suggestion of severe changes to the restrictions

Boris Johnson will warn the public today that even a modest relaxation of the lockdown would risk a deadly second wave of the virus.
The prime minister is expected to unveil his final thinking on social restrictions this evening as he leads the Downing Street daily press conference for the first time this month.
Sources from the government said he would make the progress that was made in bringing the virus and prevent the NHS from being overwhelmed.
But he will also level with the public about the difficult to make the cripple lockdown, which is thought to cost the economy £ 2 billion a day.
Mr. Johnson will warn that the government will not repeal any measure that would risk a return on the exponential growth in the virus.

The Cabinet will meet tomorrow & # 39; phase two & # 39; but it has become increasingly clear that Mr. Johnson will have every hope of ending the lockdown.
One No10 source told The Daily Telegraph: & # 39; It will be hot in & # 39; t area how we satisfy our five tests for the exit of & # 39; the lockdown, of which & # 39; t the head ensures that we do not risk other exponential rise infections.
& # 39; It's still too early to reveal details about how & # 39; any relief from & # 39; a lockdown that looks. & # 39;
Data released on Wednesday showed that the UK has one of & # 39; worst coronavirus deaths in & # 39; e world, only better than Spain and Belgium per capita. And Dominic Raab pointed to a potentially premature embarrassment of measures in Germany as a reason for retention.
& # 39; Chancellor Merkel has made it clear that they may need a second release in Germany if the infection rate continues to increase. & # 39; The Secretary of State said at Downing Street's briefing.
Ministers are working on a series of workplace manuals with details of restrictions that will not continue, even if there is a reduction in the lockdown.
Business Secretary Alok Sharma has asked officials to offer advice on how a slow return to work could be safely managed for seven different types of workplaces, including offices, factories and construction sites.
Companies will be told to close canteens and other common spaces, as well as to mean new shift patterns to allow for social distance and reduce the pressure on public transport at peak times.
Office staff are likely encouraged to continue working from home, where possible.
Deputy Chief Medical Officer Jonathan Van-Tam said a partial opening of schools & # 39; in & # 39; was a mix & # 39; but it was & # 39; too early & # 39; to expect early action seen as the burden of social distance within them.
One Whitehall source said the three weekly review of lock measurements, on May 7, would only involve modest changes.
& # 39; We are discussing whether we can undo the top button and make things in one or two places more comfortable for the economy, & # 39; added the source. & # 39; But any idea of a comprehensive repeal is just plain wrong. & # 39;

The Scientific Advisory Group on Emergency & # 39; s Government will provide new evidence to ministers in the coming days, but it is expected to say that the lifting of much of & # 39; e restrictions immediately would lead to the onset of infection.
A source from & # 39; the government said that Mr Johnson & # 39; it will be very clear that we will not do anything that could risk this … because then you are back with the virus exponentially spread and the risk of a second lockdown & # 39 ;.
At & # 39; press conference of & # 39; On the night of last night, Secretary of State Dominic Raab noted a reported rise in virus cases in Germany, which has compounded his lockdown.
He said a similar uptick in & # 39; the UK & # 39; is a very real risk & # 39;
