Coronavirus: UK could be put on lockdown if Britons ignore advice

The Housing Secretary Robert Jenrick has warned people to stay at home it “isn’t a game” and warns if we do not listen to the warning the UK could be put on lockdown.

The Welsh Government has already announced if people do not follow social distancing they will enforce it.

The UK is considering tougher action because Britons continue to ignore the advice which is aimed at slowing the spread of coronavirus.

Housing Secretary Robert Jenrick warned that asking people to stay at home in an attempt to suppress the number of COVID-19 cases was not “a game”, as he refused to rule out tougher action.

The action will go further than the Government announcement of closing Cafes, Pubs, Bars, Restaurants and gyms for the foreseeable future as the spread the virus continues to accelerate.

The advice remains do not go out and reduce social interaction with others otherwise the NHS will become overburdened and lives of the most elderly and most vulnerable will be put at risk.

within France, they have implemented official paperwork in order to leave your home. It is believed that the UK may soon follow this.

Mr Jenrick appeared on the Sky News Sophy Ridge on Sunday programme saying “We don’t want to go down that route.

“We want to live in a free society where we can continue to go about activities while continuing to follow medical advice.

“We have now closed the pubs, the restaurants, the clubs, the indoor gyms and leisure activities, and we want people now to follow that advice and stay at home wherever possible.

“If people don’t follow that advice, we’ll clearly have to consider other options.

“But none of us want to go down that route.”
