UK Government Lock Down Whole Country For Covid-19

The total number of infected people with COVID-19 has increased significantly in the UK since Italy and Spain. So far 435 people have died and 8077 have been infected by COVID-19 in Britain. According to NHS data, 87 people have died in just 24 hours. The number of infected people are increasing day by day in Scotland, England, Wales and Northern Ireland. Meanwhile, the 71-year-old Prince Charles of Wales has also been infected with COVID-19. The doctor has advised him to rest, as he is now self-isolated in his home in Scotland. A statement from the royal family said that "It is not possible to ascertain from whom the Prince caught the virus owing to the high number of engagements he carried out in his public role during recent weeks." Scotland's First Minister Nicola Sturgeon has advised to stay at home except to buy basic necessities, for medical/care needs, or to help a vulnerable person. 22 people have died in Scotland so far, and total number of infected people now 720. Last Monday, UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced to lock down of the entire United Kingdom. Mr Johnson said the country faced a "moment of national emergency" and staying at home was necessary to protect the NHS and save lives. He said that the restrictions would be in place for at least three weeks and would be kept under constant review. People may only leave home to exercise once a day, travel to and from work when it is "absolutely necessary", shop for essential items and fulfil any medical or care needs. Mr. Johnson said that shops selling non-essential goods have been told to shut and gatherings in public of more than two people who do not live together will be prohibited. If people do not follow the rules police will have the powers to enforce them, including through fines and dispersing gatherings. Police surveillance is going on everywhere, the number of vehicles on the road is very low. Almost everyone is a prisoner of their own houses. There is already a crisis of necessity all over UK.
