She told the Daily Downing Street briefing the numbers were & # 39; worry & # 39; and urged people to leave their homes only for & # 39; needs & # 39; creating fear that failure to comply with the rules can result in a second wave of coronavirus.

In addition to the risks presented by intensive travel, PHE has warned that those who are seriously overweight are at a higher risk of COVID-19 serious illness. Traveling to high-calorie foods, therefore, connects these health risks & # 39; s.

Speaking in number 10, Ms. Doyle said that the latest government slide on transportation use & # 39; concerns & # 39; used to be.

& # 39; This is a transport slide that shows the use of various forms of transport, & # 39; told them at & # 39; the press conference.

& # 39; So & # 39; we have seen very dramatic falls so far in & # 39; in most modes, but there has been an uptick in engines.

& # 39; The message here is really that we are still going through this peak and this use of motorcycles is the highest workday use since March 23 and we need to be real that most people make efforts to stay home and live rescued and this is a little worrying.

& # 39; So please stay home, protect the NHS, save lives, and go out for the need and transportation data will reflect that. & # 39;

There is growing evidence to suggest that some Brits have enough of a lockdown restriction, with more people also being in the & # 39; s parks. a nation seen in previous weeks.

The government has insisted that it does not want lockdown measures lifted too early, in order to # & # 39; t still land the & # 39; dangerous moment & # 39; experienced in & # 39; the coronavirus pandemic.

Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab pointed to a reported increase in Covid-19 cases in Germany while discussing social distance measures at Downing Street's daily press conference.

Mr. Raab said a similar uptick in & # 39; the UK & # 39; is a very real risk and it is important that we proceed cautiously & # 39 ;.

He added: & # 39; We must not gamble away the sacrifices and progress we have made – we must continue with the scientific evidence and we must continue to make the right decisions at the right moment in & # 39; take time. & # 39;

The Foreign Minister said he & # 39; did not know & # 39; whether the five lockdown lifting tests were met and said the country was at a & # 39; delicate and dangerous moment in this challenge & # 39 ;.

He explained that the UK was still & # 39; peaking & # 39; of the virus and said people should keep current measures & # 39; until we get out & # 39; e forest are & # 39 ;.

Professor Van-Tam also cautioned in reopening schools and said that ministers & # 39; are indeed cautious & # 39; must have to. He said it was & # 39; too early & # 39; was to go back to class, but said the idea was & # 39; in & # 39; e mix & # 39; in conversations about reducing the restrictions.

He also doubted that it was possible for young children to stay two meters apart in a classroom setting.

The comments of Prof. Van-Tam comes hours after Education Secretary Gavin Williamson said schools are & # 39; phased in & # 39; would re-open but that the government had no fixed date in mind for this.

Wetherspoons plans to open its pubs & # 39; in or around June & # 39; re-open after they are locked in coronavirus lockon

By Lara Keay

Wetherspoons has plans to open its pubs and hotels & # 39; in or around June & # 39; to re-open, became public today.

President Tim Martin was forced to close all 900 pubs and 40,000 workers before Britain closed.

He was one of & # 39; the last on & # 39; e High Street to close shop, with drinkers defending their final pints on March 20 – just three days before a shutdown was imposed by law.

There were threats to launch a national boycott of the chain when Mr Martin proved that the closure of pubs & # 39; over the top & # 39; and that supermarkets posed a greater risk of spreading coronavirus than bars.

He later refused to pay workers until he received the appropriate government allowance and further fury and accusations of hypocrisy arose when he told workers instead to get jobs at Tesco.

His pub in Crystal Palace, south London, was covered with the words & # 39; pay your staff & # 39; after Brexit support boss refused to pay staff until his government money went through.

Today, JD Wetherspoon said the goal is to raise £ 141 million as part of a share placement scheme so it can reopen as the summer begins.

The company said it is increasing the amount by issuing up to 15.7 million shares at 900 pence per share.

But the Deputy Medical Officer of Public Health England, Professor Jonathan Van-Tam, today revealed that the hope of pubs is reopening at any moment.

He asked on & # 39; the reopening of pubs, beaches & garden centers & # 39; Downing Street Press Conference: & # 39; At several different points, they may involve the community of individuals and one must think very carefully and cautiously about some of these before we make the wrong move to relax measures.

Mr Martin, a donor of the Conservative Party and Fear Brexiteer, caused even more controversy last month when he said he would catch coronavirus, not to mention his & # 39; chances are good & # 39 ;.

The 64-year-old said, & # 39; If anyone offered me the opportunity now to have it under supervised circumstances, I think I would probably take it, & # 39; your chances are very, very good. & # 39;

He told Sky at the time: & # 39; Supermarkets are very, very full. Pubs are much less crowded.

& # 39; There is hardly any transmission of the virus within pubs and I think it is over the top to close them. That is a commercial view, but also a face perspective. & # 39;

He claimed that a national shutdown & # 39; draconian & # 39; was and that it & # 39; health benefits & # 39; do not bid.

Mr. Martin had hoped he could get away with introducing social distance into his pubs, with a & # 39; regular only & # 39; policy in some.

He said people would be able to keep their distance easier if footfall dropped with some who could not leave the house because of underlying health conditions.

The news was met with a mixed reaction on social media, with some desperate to return to their favorite pubs and others continuing to boycott.

One person asked if she could pre-order drinks for the June re-opening.

But someone else wrote: & # 39; I plan to take a social distance from Wetherspoons and Tim Martin indeed. & # 39;

Another person commented: & # 39; I certainly won't spend any money in a Wetherspoons after & # 39; s all over. #TimMartin. & # 39;
