The Prime Minister has warned people that it is “important not to run away with premature conclusions” as cases have hit a sixth day low.
Boris Johnson was asked over the fall in cases the last six days, he said, “I’ve noticed that we’re six days into some better figures.
“But it is very very important that we don’t allow ourselves to run away with premature conclusions about this.
“Step 4 of the opening up only took place a few days ago. People have got to remain very cautious and that remains the approach of the government.”
Johnson also urged people to continue with “self-isolation” as the pingdemic picks up pace, which has forced businesses to close.
The Prime Minister said, “I know people have been frustrated about the pinging and the self-isolation, I totally understand that, particularly now that we’re starting to see some better figures.
“But I think everybody understands that this is still a very dangerous disease. We do need to use the tools that we have, self-isolation is the one that we’ve got.
“I urge people to do it.
Johnson urged people to “stick with the programme” until 16 August when those who are double jabbed will be exempt from self-isolation.
