London, Jan 22 UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson said that it was "too early to say when restrictions will be lifted" as coronavirus infections in the country continue to remain high.
"We've got to observe the lockdown, the stay at home message, protect each other and protect the NHS (National Health Service). It's absolutely crucial in what is unquestionably going to be a tough few weeks ahead," he said on Thursday during a visit to the Greater Manchester area hit by heavy flooding.
Johnson said figures from the Office for National Statistics (ONS) and other studies showed clearly that the new coronavirus variant, which was first discovered in the country late last year, is very contagious, reports Xinhua news agency.
