Covid-19 UK govt minister rules out ANOTHER lockdown.

Coronavirus latest: BRITS won't be plunged back into lockdown again this winter, a Cabinet minister vowed today.

Business Secretary Kwasi Kwarteng insisted he would "rule out" the return of harsh restrictions on travel and our daily lives.

He said talk of a shutdown is "completely unhelpful" and people should look forward to events like Christmas parties "as usual" this year.

But he also admitted the Government is "concerned about" rising cases, hospitalisations, and deaths.

Asked about calls from some scientists for another lockdown, he said: "I would rule that out. I absolutely think it would be completely wrong.

"Throughout this process there have been people saying the lockdown was unnecessary and other people saying we should continue the lockdown.

"We’ve really plotted a path between those two extremes and it has worked."
