“At various different points (the activities) might involve a congregation of individuals and one has to be very painstaking and very careful about thinking through some of these before we make the wrong move to relax measures,” he told a news conference on Wednesday.

“We have to be extremely sure-footed and extremely painstaking about this. This virus will absolutely come back.”
