Back at work, British PM warns against easing virus lockdown


Prime Minister Boris Johnson on Monday made his first public appearance since being hospitalised with coronavirus three weeks ago, saying Britain was beginning to ?turn the tide? on the outbreak but rejecting calls to ease a nationwide lockdown. In a statement in Downing Street marking his return to work, looking thinner and with his trademark blond hair a little more unruly than usual, Johnson apologised for being away ?for much longer than I would have liked?.
