The UK Prime Minister’s Facebook Page encouraged the people of the UK to not go visit family and friends this easter weekend by posting: “Thinking of seeing friends and family this Easter? Don’t.”
“If you leave home, you could catch or spread coronavirus. #StayHomeSaveLives”
The photo added said: “Don’t give more than chocolate this weekend”.
In other news, Jeremy Hunt, the former Conservative foreign secretary said he don’t believe that the nationwide lockdown restrictions will be lifted next week.
The chairman of the Commons Health and Social Care Select Committee said:
“As we’ve seen from Italy and other countries, you don’t get a peak and then an immediate reduction, you stay at that peak level for some time. I think it’s perfectly reasonable to say that the lockdown is going to need to continue for a while and we don’t need to take this decision at the beginning of next week.”
Downing Street, however, said the 3week review of the COVID-19 lockdown will still go ahead as planned, also added that the public needed to “stick with it” at a “critical time” in the epidemic.
The Official spokesman said the review would take place on Monday.
The spokesperson added that Sir Patrick Vallance, the chief scientific adviser, and Professor Chris Whitty, who is the chief medical officer for England, made it clear that it was too early to say when the COVID-19 pandemic would reach its peak.
