LONDON, Sept 21 — Britain needs to control the coronavirus now in order for Christmas to be as normal as possible, health minister Matt Hancock said today.

“The more we can control the virus now and stop the spread now, the easier it’s going to be to have a Christmas that’s as close to normal as possible,” he said during an interview on ITV. “I really hope we can get there.”

“If this runs out of control now, we’ll have to take heavier measures in the future,” he said. — Reuters
