LONDON (Reuters) - British senior minister Michael Gove said on Sunday there were problems with the level of compliance with COVID-19 self-isolation rules, as he ruled out imposing blanket restrictions across the country to tackle a surge in cases of the virus.

“There has been a problem with compliance and a challenge on enforcement,” Gove told Sky News on Sunday, adding that the support from government for people forced to self-isolate was always kept under review.
