  • Some 19,000 British travellers were repatriated from cruise ships at the start of the crisis

But that will depend on the public following official advice and taking precautions, including wearing face coverings more regularly, he said.

Addressing People's Prime Minister's Questions (PMQs) on social media, the United Kingdom prime minister urged people to start going back to work if they can and feel confident to return to shops and restaurants as they begin opening up by following the social distancing guidance.

But Johnson later clarified his statement, saying people should only return if their company is obeying the guidelines and it was safe to do so, the Metro newspaper reported.

But he said ministers are examining ways of ensuring people cover their faces while out shopping.

Speaking as face coverings became compulsory in shops in Scotland on Friday, Nicola Sturgeon said she "recognised" concerns they may be uncomfortable to wear.

And he hinted that stricter rules on wearing face coverings in public places may be introduced in a bid to reduce the spread of coronavirus.

"I want to see more people feeling confident to use the shops, use the restaurants, and get back into work - but only if we all follow the guidance".

Maxwell vigorously denies the charges, intends to fight them, and is entitled to the presumption of innocence", the lawyers wrote. Last year, Epstein was found dead in his cell after hanging himself in his NY prison cell.

"But face coverings, we increasingly think that we have got to be very insistent in confined spaces, where you are meeting people you don't normally come into contact with - transport, shops - wear a face cover". I think we should now say, well, "go back to work if you can".

Face coverings are now compulsory on public transport and in hospitals in England, while people are legally obliged to wear them inside shops and on public transport in Scotland.

Johnson was later pictured wearing a face covering while visiting businesses in his constituency.

"I understand the public health advice, which is that if there's a risk of being less than 2 metres close to someone then you should wear it but if not you don't have to", the chairman of the Commons health and social care committee told BBC Radio 4's Today programme.

He also indicated that strict precautions against COVID-19 infections could allow Britain to minimise economic disruption in the coming months without seeing a second wave of coronavirus and hoped for V-shaped or quick economic bounce back.

"I want that to happen, it should happen, it must happen", he told the "People's PMQs" question session.

The premier also said data show the coronavirus outbreak "seems to be tapering off" in the United Kingdom and that he would not impose another nationwide lockdown "if we can possibly avoid it".
