‘Selfish’ Brits force the UK to head towards lockdown

Due to “selfish” Brits, the Prime Minister is looking to rush new laws on coronavirus through the House of Commons in a day, bringing the potential of a complete lockdown of the UK in the next 24 hours.

The Coronavirus Bill follows comes after much of the “very selfish” public ignored ignored the advice to stay inside during a sunny Mother’s Day.

The potential of these new laws restricting our freedoms come after Health Secretary Matt Hancock said on Monday: “We will enforce and bring in further strong measures if we need to, but I’d much rather people follow the rules themselves, it would be much more straight forward.”

He went on to say:

“If we need to go further in terms of people’s interactions than we will.

Many Brits were seen enjoying the sun on Mother’s day weekend, disregarding the guidelines to quarantine set by the government

Mr Hancock described such people as “very selfish” and went on to say:

“If people go within two metres of others who they don’t live with, they are helping to spread the virus – that costs lives.”

This news comes as the death toll in the UK has now reached 288, with a total number of 5,683 confirmed cases of COVID-19.

The youngest British person confirmed to have died from the coronavirus is an 18 year-old man.

So far the UK has been behind many countries who have already put in further measures to prevent the spread of the virus, Including Germany, who have just announced that they are banning meetings of more than 2 people.
