“It is going to spread further and I must level with you, I must level with the British public: many more families are going to lose loved ones before their time.”
Now the UK has moved into the delay phase of the coronavirus outbreak which means measures are being put in place to delay the peak of the outbreak.
Mr Johnson said there was a need to delay the spread of COVID-19 to “minimise the suffering” and reduce the impact on the NHS.
Advice now is for those who have any symptoms of coronavirus is to stay at home for at least seven days.
Mr Johnson said: ”If you have coronavirus symptoms however mild, either a new continuous cough or a high temperature, then you should stay at home for at least seven days to protect others and help slow the spread of the disease.”
