The US has cautioned its citizens against travelling to the UK over the country’s rising COVID-19 cases. 

The development comes 24 hours after Prime Minister Boris Johnson lifted all COVID-19 restrictions in the UK.

The restrictions, which ended on Sunday midnight, put an end to rules on mask-wearing.

Limits on the number of people who can mix indoor or outdoor have also ended, while social distancing is only limited to people who have tested positive for the virus.
