UK ‘learning lessons’ on Covid-19, Boris Johnson says
Challenged on the UK’s poor performance and the threat of a second wave, and asked what he’d do differently, Boris Johnson told LBC: “We’re learning lessons the whole time about how to handle this disease.”
“There’ll be a time to look at what we could have done better” but this was not now, during “this very very busy phase”, the PM added.
People must “enjoy summer sensibly”, Mr Johnson added, as he praised Britons for their adherence to lockdown restrictions so far. Later in the interview he expanded on his answer and warned people “not to blow it now” after their hard work.
Mr Johnson’s message on being sensible was echoed by Cressida Dick, the Metropolitan Police commissioner, who told the BBC: “If you’re coming out on Saturday, be calm, be sensible. Look after yourself, look after your family.
“We are still in a global pandemic which is affecting this country. People need to be sensible.”
