LONDON (REUTERS, AFP) – British Prime Minister Boris Johnson on Monday (March 23) ordered people to stay at home, escalating an already unprecedented clampdown on daily life to try and halt the spread of coronavirus.
Deaths from the virus in Britain jumped by 54 to 335 on Monday as the government said the military would help ship millions of items of personal protective equipment (PPE) including masks to healthcare workers who have complained of shortages.
“From this evening I must give the British people a very simple instruction – you must stay at home,” Johnson said in a televised address to the nation, replacing his usual daily news conference.
Johnson said people would be allowed to leave their homes only for basic necessities: exercise, for a medical need, to provide care or travelling to and from work where absolutely necessary.
