UK entering period of particular concern: Minister

London, Sep 9 (TIWN) The UK is entering a "period of particular concern" as the number of coronavirus cases were increasing across the country, Housing Secretary Robert Jenrick said on Tuesday.

The housing secretary said there was a "big burden" on people to follow social distancing rules or risk returning to stricter lockdown measures.  On Sunday, the UK recorded 2,988 new cases of the virus, the highest level since May, with a further 2,948 cases reported in the 24 hours up to 9am on Monday.  Speaking to Sky News, Mr Jenrick insisted the government's local lockdown approach was keeping the virus at bay, but admitted the rise was "very concerning".  "The coronavirus is still with us so we all need to take great care. There is a concerning rise in cases and it reminds us that we have to keep following the guidance," he said.
