Cabinet Minister Michael Gove said he believed the restrictions Boris Johnson announced would lower the R-value, but warned people may have to stay at home longer otherwise.

In his announcement on Saturday, October 31, the prime minister said the restrictions would end on December 2, when the government reintroduces local restrictions based on the latest data and trends.

But Mr Gove said it would be “foolish” to predict what will happen with the pandemic over the next four weeks, and admitted the lockdown may have to be extended.

When asked in an interview with Sky News’ Sophy Ridge on Sunday if the nationwide lockdown could be extended, he replied, “Yes.”

Mr Gove said: ‘We want to be in a position where we can – and I think we probably will – have an approach where, if we reduce the infection rate enough, we can reduce measures at the national level. and also reduce the measures. regionally.

“Because the regional approach is an approach that, as far as possible, we want to take because, again, we recognize that in the future, having reduced R below 1, having reduced national restrictions, we may see a specific upsurge in specific areas that will require specific regional action. “
