UK PM Johnson: We need new COVID-19 restrictions, but economy can keep moving

Tue, 22nd Sep 2020 20:07

LONDON, Sept 22 (Reuters) - British Prime Minister Boris
Johnson said on Tuesday he had to take action to halt the spread
of COVID-19, but that the economy could continue to move forward
despite new restrictions.

"We must take action now... this way we can keep people in
work, we can keep our shops and our schools open, and we can
keep our country moving forward while we work together to
suppress the virus," Johnson said in a televised address, urging
people to abide by the new rules, which he outlined to
parliament earlier.
