LONDON (Reuters) - Interior minister Priti Patel repeated the government’s message to the public on Saturday to stay at home as Britain battles the coronavirus outbreak, calling on people to continue to follow the rules as the country was not yet out of danger.

“Our instruction remains clear, people should stay at home, protect the NHS (National Health Service) and save lives,” Patel told a news conference.

“We know that people are frustrated but we are not out of danger. It is imperative that we continue to follow the rules.”
