Boris Johnson is to write to every household in the UK
He's reiterating the "national emergency" facing the country
Boris Johnson is warning every household he could impose even stricter lockdown measures to tackle the coronavirus outbreak as it inevitably worsens.
The Prime Minister, who is self-isolating with Covid-19, is writing to every address telling people the closer they adhere to the rules "the sooner life can return to normal".
Stressing the "national emergency", the letters will land on doorsteps after the number of people to have died in UK hospitals surged past 1,000, increasing by 260 in 24 hours.
NHS England's national medical director warned that now was not the time for complacency after a study suggested social distancing could deliver a lower death toll than previously feared.Published: by Radio NewsHub
