The Covid-19 death toll in the UK has risen to 1,228 and almost 20,000 tested positive for the virus as at the time of writing this report. The UK is not looking at relaxing the lock-down but may review same around Easter.

The Secretary for Housing, Communities and Local Government, Robert Jenrick who now speaks to the press on behalf of the self isolated Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, said during a media briefing in Downing Street that the Government was bringing together senior members of the emergency services, with local authorities and the NHS to “lead communities through this challenging period, from Cornwall to Cumbria. Members of the armed forces will be embedded in each of these groups.”

He said he has put in place centres across the country with emergency footing, which hasn’t been in place since the Second World War.

The Minister also advised young people – “There are many young people who feel they are invincible. The virus affects all of us. “Stay at home and when you do go out, do it in a manner that we have advised. When you can’t work from home, follow guidance whilst you are there.”

The Minister also took time to thank key workers and the 750,000 people to have signed up to help the NHS.
