Coronavirus lockdown to last for "a signficant period"

That's according to Cabinet minister Michael Gove

The coronavirus lockdown will be in place for a "significant period" and could last longer if people do not stick to the rules, Cabinet minister Michael Gove has said.

He acknowledged on Sunday the scale of the "sacrifice" the public is taking but said he could not make "an accurate prediction" on how long it must be endured.

The Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster's warning came after the UK's death toll passed 1,000 and Boris Johnson wrote to every household with a warning he could impose stricter measures.


But Mr Gove declined to say what the tougher rules could look like with the public confined to their homes for all but essential travel and for once-daily exercise.
