NHS England have announced on Monday that there have been 46 more deaths from coronavirus across the UK bringing the total to 335.
Boris Johnson is preparing emergency new laws in the House of Commons for a possible lockdown within 24 hours as “very selfish” people are ignoring social distancing measures.
As a direct result of people across the UK socialising in large groups in Snowdonia, Brighton, Battersea park and many other locations we could now face a full lockdown.
The measures of the lockdown could include movement being restricted by the police or military, with possible curfews implemented to enforce self-isolation.
Speaking on BBC Radio 4, Matt Hancock said he doesn’t know why some people are ignoring the government’s advice.
“It’s very selfish,” he told the Today programme.
“The NHS is doing everything it can and preparing for the spread of this virus.
“If people go within two metres of others who they don’t live with then they’re helping to spread the virus – and the consequences of that costs lives and it means that, for everyone, this will go on for longer.”
IMPORTANT: Just got off the phone to experts from the NHS & Public Heath England.
I cannot say this strongly enough: if you care about your loved ones, if you care about our NHS, do not leave your home unless you have to.

A senior NHS doctor has expressed his fears that staff could be passing on the coronavirus to patients as they are not being provided with tests.
The doctor wrote about his experiences and said there is “little we can do” and victims are dying in front of his eyes.
It has been revealed that there is a huge shortage of protective equipment for medical staff and they are not tested unless they show symptoms.
He warned that not everyone shows symptoms immediately but can still be carriers and fears “as a doctor could be a silent killer” passing on coronavirus to patients.
On Sunday, the British Prime Minister, Boris Johnson has ordered all Britons to immediately “Stay at home” over the “war” of the coronavirus pandemic.
The Ministry of Defence (MoD) have said that military planners have visited the Excel Centre to determine to turn it into a military field hospital to help the overstretched NHS, providing 4,000 beds.
On Sunday the military planners visited the Excel site, which is a 100-acre site on the northern quay of the Royal Victoria Dock in London Docklands, between Canary Wharf and London City Airport.
According to The Telegraph the Excel site is “one of many earmarked” and “The Queen Elizabeth Centre is another. It’s simple to convert, centrally located, easy to protect.”
