UK Government ‘doesn’t expect’ to relax lockdown
The government does not expect to relax or lift the coronavirus lockdown later this week, Dominic Raab has said.
The foreign secretary, who is deputising for Prime Minister Boris Johnson as he recovers from the coronavirus, said there are some “positive signs” from the data that show “we are starting to win this struggle”.
But he warned: “We are still not past the peak.”
He was speaking at the government’s daily COVID-19 press conference, which comes ahead of the first review of the UK’s lockdown measures on Thursday.
The stringent restrictions, imposed last month in order to try to halt the spread of the virus, are widely expected to be extended.
Ministers have said they want to be certain the UK is past the peak of the epidemic before they ease the conditions of the lockdown.
