Daily news conferences are going to be held to update the public on the fight against the coronavirus outbreak, Downing Street has said.
The Prime Minister or one of his "senior ministers" will hold the televised briefing from Monday. It comes after Mr Johnson received criticism over an apparent lack of transparency in the fight against Covid-19.
The first of the daily briefings will come after the Mr Johnson chairs a Cobra committee meeting, expected to focus on plans to shield elderly and vulnerable citizens, household isolation and mass gatherings.
Announcing the plan, No 10 said the briefing would also include a revolving cast of medical and scientific experts.
A spokeswoman said: "The Prime Minister and this Government are committed to keeping the public informed every step of the way about what we’re doing to fight the spread of coronavirus, when we’re doing it and why we’re doing it,"
"At all times, we will be led by the science to bring forward the right responses at the right time to this global pandemic."
Mr Johnson had earlier come under fire for ministers and advisers allegedly briefing selected journalists over plans to tackle the crisis.
