LONDON, Sept 8 (Reuters) - A British government minister said on Tuesday that a rise in the number of COVID-19 cases in the country was concerning and he called on people to follow health guidance or risk tougher restrictions in the coming months.
“There’s a big burden on all of us now to follow the guidance as closely as we can or else we do risk greater restrictions later this year,” housing minister Robert Jenrick told Sky News television.
Other top government officials have also expressed concern about a rise in the number of COVID-19 cases in recent days. (Reporting by Guy Faulconbridge and William Schomberg, Editing by Paul Sandle)
