PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab has urged for caution in the "last lap" of the fight against coronavirus. Speaking on Sky's Sophy Ridge on Sunday, Mr Raab said that "steady steps" out of lockdown are "the smart way to go" so that the many sacrifices are not squandered, PA reports. He said: "I know that people are hankering to go a bit faster but actually we feel vindicated at taking steady steps out of the lockdown is the smart way to go. "We're very close now to really turning the corner and I think we still need to be careful to go as I said we don't want to see the gains lost and the sacrifices that have been made undone. "By the time we get to June 21 almost all social restrictions will be lifted so there's only a little bit more time to go, but it's right to make sure we do that in a careful way. "We're at the end of really the process if you like, we've got two more steps to take, but I do think given the rollout of the vaccine, that's exciting. "It's got people thinking about not just social interaction but of course things like hugging your loved ones that you haven't been able to do for a while.
