The secretary of State for Health and Social Care, Matt Hancock said people who do not practice social distancing are “very selfish” because they put NHS workers and others in danger of getting the COVID-19 virus.
He also mentioned stricter rules such as curfews and closing more place will most likely be implemented.
He added that it is very unfair and selfish for people to go out and be social in this difficult time we are facing. By going out you are spreading the virus and preventing us from stopping it.
If you are following the government’s instruction on social distancing, you are helping the country and your fellow UK citizens. Matt Hancock said he is unsure as to why the public is ignoring the government’s instruction and risking the lives of NHS workers.
The secretary of State for Health and Social Care added that the instruction from the government for social isolation was very clear and that the public should keep 2 meters apart and stay at home as much as they can.
The known cases in the UK is currently 5,683 and there are currently 281 people in the UK who have sadly passed away due to this virus.
The government is thinking about shutting down non-essential stores in order to keep people at home. This comes as fast food such as Nando’s, Costa Coffee and McDonald’s and other retail and food chains will be closing their doors.
