It seems the only positive step was taken by the Tories so far seems to be the daily updates regarding  COVID-19 after massive criticism from parties within the House as well as the general public.

With two MP’s already infected and many more still under self-quarantine awaiting results, the pressure is mounting every minute for Boris Johnson to finally take the drastic steps being called upon by the public.

Kate Osborne posted the following on her Twitter account:

“I have been diagnosed with Coronavirus (#covidー19uk) following a period of self-isolation and subsequent testing.”

“I will continue to self isolate until I have fought off the illness, but in the meantime, I would encourage everyone to band together and support the most vulnerable in our communities.”

Most of Europe along with countries like the United States have already cancelled schools to reduces the risk of infection by the young. Businesses are either temporarily shutting down or having employees work from home to reduce contact between employees.

The UK however, have not taken any punitive steps as last week Boris Johnson announced that schools would not be closing.

This has led to the creation of #COVID19Walkout trending across the internet with school kids threatening to walk out of all classrooms at 11  am on Friday 20 March if the government continue to do nothing to prevent the further spread of the virus.
