United Kingdom moves from 'contain' to 'delay' in coronavirus plan

Coronavirus Boris Johnson accused of moving too slowly to stop mass deaths

Coronavirus Boris Johnson accused of moving too slowly to stop mass deaths

A PETITION demanding Boris Johnson shuts down schools is approaching 500,000 signatures amid mounting fears over the coronavirus outbreak.

The UK approach to the virus has been conspicuously moderate compared with measures taken in other European countries.

Boris Johnson has said schools will not yet close in the UK.

In response to Hunt's criticism, the Prime Minister's official spokesman said: "We are very clear where we take our advice from".

Johnson insisted comparisons to seasonal flu were wrong.

"I must level with the British public, many more families are going to lose loved ones before their time".

"Containment" aims to halt the spread of the disease but "delay" seeks to slow its progression.

Mr Hunt, chair of the Commons health and social care committee, said he was also "personally surprised that we're still allowing external visits to care homes".

That "may change as the disease spreads", he said, but for now schools should only close "if they are specifically advised to do so".

It means that anyone who has symptoms like a continuous new cough or a high temperature will have to stay at home for seven days.

So far, the United Kingdom has confirmed 590 COVID-19 cases, with a 29 percent increase in cases over just 24 hours.

The infant and its mother both tested positive at a north London hospital and staff who had contact with the pair have been advised to self-isolate.

"As far as we are aware, the Government has not asked schools to plan for such closures".

Government advice is not to call 111 with mild and minor symptoms but only to call the service when symptoms begin to get worse. Mr Vallance predicted that the worse is yet to come for Britain, probably at least ten to 14 weeks away.

Ms Sturgeon said she would have to start banning large public gatherings such as at football matches because services such as ambulances and policing - required at major events - would be "under acute pressure" and she wanted to remove "unnecessary burdens" on them.

Johnson has also advised schools to cancel trips overseas, and people over the age of 70 and with pre-existing health conditions have been told not go on cruises.

Johnson's workplace stated in a while Saturday that he was as a outcome of communicate to producers on Monday about supporting the manufacturing of important medical package.

Soldiers with training in biological and chemical warfare will also start to deep-clean empty public buildings should they be needed to be converted into hospitals or morgues, a defence source told the Daily Mail.

Worldwide, 135,000 people have been infected and almost 5,000 have died, but half of those who had the virus have already recovered.

COVID-19 usually presents only mild or moderate symptoms, such as fever and cough, and the vast majority of people recover.

Writing in the Sunday Telegraph, he said everyone would have to make sacrifices to protect not only themselves, but "especially those most vulnerable to the disease". "But we need every part of society and every industry to ask what they can do to help the effort".

Isolating the entire elderly population so early is not logical, according to the government's scientific advisers.
