Complacency could be our undoing, UK PM Johnson warns on virus

Tue, 22nd Sep 2020 12:48

LONDON, Sept 22 (Reuters) - Britain is better prepared for a
second wave of COVID-19 than it was for the first one, Prime
Minister Boris Johnson said on Tuesday, but he said complacency
about the risk of infection could be the country's undoing.

"After six months of restrictions it will be tempting to
hope that the threat has faded, and to seek comfort in the
belief that if you have avoided the virus so far then you are
somehow immune," he told lawmakers. "I have to say that it is
that kind of complacency that could be our undoing."
