Raab is deputising while Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, recuperates from COVID-19 complications.

“Relaxing any of the measures currently in place would risk damage to both public health and the economy,” he said on Thursday.

The UK has the fifth-highest official death toll from COVID-19 in the world, after the United States, Italy, Spain and France.

The announcement, which had been widely expected, means Britons must stay at home unless they are shopping for basic necessities or meeting medical needs.
