British Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, is reluctant to end lockdown due to fears a likely second wave of the Covid-19.
The premier, who also recently recovered from the deadly virus, is reportedly more interested in warding off a second wave of infections than ending the lockdown.
He has reportedly told Foreign Secretary, Dominic Raab, Senior Adviser Dominic Cummings, Communications Director, Lee Cain, and Cabinet Secretary, Sir Mark Sedwill, during a two-hour meeting on Friday that he is mindful of a second peak in Coronavirus capable of throwing the country back into crisis.
Culture Secretary, Oliver Dowden, had explained in interviews that ‘’the PM is very concerned about a second peak if we lift the restrictions too soon.’’
Government also downplayed the idea of schools reopening by mid-May, as mooted by senior Tories over the weekend, suggesting that reopening is more likely by early June instead.
How soon the lockdown would end has reportedly split the British Cabinet into different camps.
