UK not thinking of easing virus lockdown measures yet: Minister


The UK is not in a position to lift lockdown restrictions given the "deeply worrying" increase in the country's COVID-19 death toll.

That's according to Cabinet Office minister Michael Gove, who said the "high level of deaths" is "concerning".

"The evidence suggests that the rate of infection and the death rate is flattening, but we're not absolutely certain that we are yet on a downward trajectory," he told Sky News.

More than 15,000 people have died in the UK, with the number of positive cases at 114, 217.
