LONDON (Reuters) - Britain will look at information to gauge if Britons are heeding advice to avoid social gatherings and unnecessary contact to see whether further restrictions are needed to stop the spread of coronavirus, Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s spokesman said.

“We will be looking at data on how much people have stopped, interacting in recent days,” the spokesman said on Monday. “If that information shows they haven’t stopped, then we will need to take further measures.”
