Tougher measures are coming in a bid to control the spread of coronavirus, the prime minister has said.
Boris Johnson said there were “tough tough” weeks ahead in the UK’s fight against COVID-19.
He added: “If you look at the numbers there’s no question we will have to take tougher measures and we will be announcing those in due course.”
The PM said the government “will do everything we can to keep the virus under control”, but also added: “I must stress at this critical moment it is so vital that people keep disciplined.”
Mr Johnson said large numbers of people were following the rules and that he recognised some were becoming frustrated with the continuing restrictions.Advertisement
“I think the public have been fantastic in the way they have tried to follow the guidance,” the PM added.
