W.H.O. Warns Against Rapid Lifting Of Coronavirus Restrictions

263,000 people have died - including more than 30,000 in the UK.
WHO director-general, Tedros Ghebreyesus, is urging countries to be cautious about lifting restrictions.

Meanwhile Northern Ireland's set to announce a phased lifting of its restrictions today.
The Stormont Assembly has held several meetings this week to discuss a gradual removal of the measures.
Their Finance Minister Conor Murphy says another meeting will be held today, before an announcement is made.
