UK IN LOCKDOWN: ‘You must stay at home’ says Boris

Prime Minister Boris Johnson has just put out a statement to the British public in regard to the COVID-19 pandemic

He says “without a huge national effort” there will come a time when “no health service in the world could possibly cope; because there won’t be enough ventilators, enough intensive care beds, enough doctors and nurses”.

“To put it simply, if too many people become seriously unwell at one time, the NHS will be unable to handle it – meaning more people are likely to die, not just from coronavirus but from other illnesses as well.”

Mr Johnson says it is “vital” to slow the spread of the virus, to “reduce the number of people needing hospital treatment at any one time, so we can protect the NHS’s ability to cope – and save more lives”.
“And that’s why we have been asking people to stay at home during this pandemic,” he says.

“From this evening I must give the British people a very simple instruction – you must stay at home,”

Boris Johnson has just announced a raft of restrictions people in the UK are being urged to follow.

From tonight, people will be allowed to leave their homes for:

  • shopping for basic necessities, as infrequently as possible
  • one form of exercise a day – for example a run, walk, or cycle, alone or with members of their household;
  • any medical need, to provide care or to help a vulnerable person;
  • travelling to and from work, but only where it is absolutely necessary and cannot be done from home

  1. My husband’s workplace have told their employees that as they are unable to work from home (they work on heritage planes and cars) so they have to go into work. They are not key or essential workers but the company is reading the government message as they can’t work from home so they have to go into work. We need the government to be clearer! Are all non-essential businesses closed or just those that have open public spaces where people might congregate?

  2. It’s time to put into practice what the government have intimated and that is to fine those abusing the keeping apart advice.
    Fine the parents of those kids who play in the streets..
    Don’t leave it until it is too late do it now.
