Boris Johnson assures gov’t can handle more ‘wretched COVID’ as UK workforce is ‘getting back on its feet’

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson assured ministers Tuesday that though there’s more “wretched COVID” to come, he’s “absolutely confident” the government can manage outbreaks as the United Kingdom’s workforce returns to their offices “in huge numbers.”

“Of course we know there is still going to be more of this disease — this wretched COVID — still to come,” Johnson said during a meeting of his Cabinet, with all ministers attending in person for the first time since the U.K. went into a coronavirus lockdown in March.

“Although we know there will be more outbreaks, we are absolutely confident that we are going to be able to deal with those outbreaks, and bit by bit this incredible country is getting back on its feet.”
