Coronavirus in UK-Foreign secretary asks people to use commom sense to meet people outside

UK government has announced that people in England can “meet up with other people” as long as they are outside and are 2m apart. 

The UK has 186,984 active cases of coronavirus whereas 31,855 have lost their lives.

The new rule is included in a 50-page guidance document that the government will publish later. 

Prime Minister Boris Johnson has announced lifting strict lockdown measures. He has proposed a “conditional plan” to ease restrictions. 

PM Boris Johnson said that people who cannot work from home should go back to work from Wednesday. However, he has also warned them not to use public transport. 

Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab said people should “use some common sense” and refrain from visiting others at their homes.

Dominic Raab said to the international news agency, “So we’ve said that as long as you go out of home, for the park, for exercise, whatever it may be, you can go with members of your own household.

“If you’re out in the park and you’re 2m apart… and use some common sense and you socially-distance, you can meet up with other people.”

He was asked if someone could meet more than two people at different timings. He replied, “Outside in the outdoors, staying 2m apart, yes.”

 “We are not moving to a stage where we say that households can mix inside the home,” 

“So just to be absolutely clear, people cannot mix within the homes… and that advice is not changing.”
