British Cabinet Minister Michael Gove was out with some comments in the last hour, saying that new restrictions will be imposed in the UK and PM will spell out further details.

Additional quotes:

  • We are taking these steps reluctantly.
  • If it is possible to work from home, people should do so.

The remarks kept the GBP on the defensive and held the GBP/USD pair below the 1.2800 mark, closer to near one-week lows set on Monday.
