“So early relaxation [of the UK COVID-19 lockdown] would do more damage to the economy over a long period... the government has decided the current measures must remain in place for at least the next three weeks... We’ve already sacrificed too much to give up now... so we need to be patient a while longer... now is not the moment to give the coronavirus a second chance.”
Dominic Raab (April 2020)  [1]
