35 in the UK have died, with 1,391 cases of the coronavirus

There are now a reported 1,391 cases of infection and 35 in the UK have died because of the coronavirus, including Nick Matthews, the youngest fatal victim of the COVID-19 in the UK, at 59 years of age.

Matt Hancock, the Health Secretary, has said that the elderly will be told that they need to keep indoors for four months as the outbreak spreads across the UK.

A large amount of Britain’s population are expected to be working from home, if their jobs allow for this, and these precautions could last for the foreseeable future.

As we have probably all seen by now, panic buying is becoming commonplace not just in the UK, but throughout all countries during this global pandemic, and so ministers have warned they could be forced to ration products such as toilet roll and beans to ensure everyone can get access to essential items.

Many countries are making efforts to put there nations into lockdown, Germany, Portugal and the Czech Republic are some of the countries to most recently take action in regards to restricting movement at locking down their borders.

Many British citizens believe the same is necessary for the UK and have started a petition to pressure the government into acting to prevent the spread of COVID-19, now that 35 in the UK have died.

It has also been announced by Downing Street that daily press conferences will be held with Boris Johnson or another senior ministers, where they will take questions from the press.

Today’s briefing will follow another emergency Cobra meeting at which next steps, such as banning large events and police intervention for those ignoring precautions, will be discussed.
