At the Press Conference today, Boris Johnson said it looks as though we are approaching the “fast growth” phase of the curve. That means cases are expected to double every five days.
Families are being urged to stay at home for 14 days if any member of the household is ill.
He said it is time for everyone to stop non-essential contact with others. That means people should work from home where possible and avoid pubs, clubs and theatres.
He said that the over 70 are being asked to avoid unnecessary social contact with other people.
We want to highlight the contradiction of saying to the population "NO social contacts", but keeping all the business open as usual.
Please: to all of you out there, think carefully and stay safe.
