London mayor voices concern over lockdown easing

London Mayor Sadiq Khan expressed concern on Saturday over the government's plan to start gradually easing coronavirus restrictions from Monday.

"I am deeply concerned we are now rushing too fast to lift lockdown measures. The Joint Biosecurity Centre has said we’re not ready to move from level 4 to 3 and the 5 tests are not met," Khan said in a tweet.

Earlier, UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson said that some non-essenatial businsses will be allowed to open from June 1, while more restrictions will be lifted from June 15. However, several members of Scientific Advisory Group for Emergencies (SAGE) warned against reopening as the contact tracing system launched just a few days ago and there is no guarantee it is effective.
