LONDON (Reuters) - It is too early for Britons to start anticipating the end of lockdown and booking summer holidays, interior minister Priti Patel said on Thursday, warning that the COVID-19 pandemic was still putting pressure on health services.
“It is far too early ... to speculate around restrictions, such as the point you just made: should people be booking a holiday,” Patel told a news conference.
“The advice is very clear we are in a lockdown, the public should be staying at home.”
