Boris Johnson: Coronavirus cases in UK could “rise significantly”




The British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has said that there could be a “very significant expansion” of the number of cases of coronavirus in the UK.

Johnson told the BBC that the transmission of the virus was “clearly on the cards”. His comments came as the number of people with the Covid-19 virus rose dramatically in the UK over the weekend.

Elsewhere, the EU has raised the coronavirus risk level in member states to “moderate to high”.

Most of the people affected in the UK and both cases in the island of Ireland are people who travelled back from northern Italy over the past 10 days.
