‘This is the moment of maximum risk’, says Boris Johnson

Agency News

In his first public statement since returning to work after recovering from a coronavirus infection, the U.K.’s Prime Minister Boris Johnson said that this is the moment of maximum risk.

There would be no quick lifting of restrictions in the country, “We are passing through the peak,” Johnson said “We are on the brink of achieving that first great mission, to prevent our National Health Service (NHS) from being overwhelmed,” he said, adding that the country was “beginning to turn the tide” against the outbreak.

While he said he recognized the urgency of lifting lockdown measures as soon as possible, he warned that “this is the moment of maximum risk” as he asked the public to contain their “impatience” with regards to the lockdown.
