LONDON (Reuters) - Britain will need to think about how its economy can adapt if a vaccine for the novel coronavirus does not emerge quickly, Prime Minister Boris Johnson said on Monday.

“If we can’t get a vaccine fast, we’re going to have to think a lot more about how we make our businesses, our lives, COVID secure whilst continuing with economic activity,” Johnson told reporters.

He added that he had no doubt the British economy would bounce back.
