The Mayor of London urged people in the capital city to stay home this weekend, despite a relaxation of lockdown measures across the United Kingdom.
“I want to be clear with Londoners: lockdown has not been lifted,” Sadiq Khan said in a tweet on Saturday.“COVID-19 is still an extremely dangerous threat.”Mayor of London (gov.uk/coronavirus)✔@MayorofLondon
I want to be clear with Londoners: lockdown has not been lifted. #COVID19 is still an extremely dangerous threat.
Continue to stay at home as much as possible this weekend. If you need to use public transport for essential travel, wear a non-medical face covering at all times.
It comes after some confusion surrounding British Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s announcement of a tentative road map for loosening restrictions earlier this week.
The U.K. has so far reported more than 238,000 cases and more than 34,000 deaths, the highest death toll in Europe, according to Johns Hopkins University data.
