LONDON (Reuters) - Britons should avoid pubs, clubs and theatres to help slow the spread of coronavirus, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson said on Monday.

“We need people to start working from home where they possibly can,” he told a news conference. “And you should avoid pubs, clubs, theatres and other such social venues.”
