The identities of many of the scientists dictating Britain’s strategy in combating coronavirus are being kept secret for their own protection, the Government said on Tuesday, but the refusal to disclose their names has fuelled concern over a lack of transparency in the handling of the pandemic. Well-placed sources insisted security concerns surrounding the Scientific Advisory Group on Emergencies (Sage) prevented those invited to attend its meetings from being named.
