NHS England have announced on Monday that there have been 46 more deaths from coronavirus across the UK bringing the total to 335.
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.

The doctor wrote about his experiences and said there is “little we can do” and victims are dying in front of his eyes.
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.
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.
