The UK has seen a record death toll on Wednesday of 936 people confirmed to have died from coronavirus.

In England 828 coronavirus patients died in hospitals, with the total being 6,483, said NHS England. Scotland announced 70 deaths, whilst Wales had 33 more deaths.

Northern Ireland’s figures have not yet been released.

The British government are set to place London in a full lockdown

The aggressive full lockdown measures set to be enforced across London by the government comes as Covid Idiots are blatantly ignoring the law and are sunbathing and playing golf, football or cricket.

Police in Kensal Green, North London shared a video of the Covid Idiots running and collecting their belongings, when police approached them.

Kensal Police tweeted, “Officers from @MPSKensalGreen were tasked to deal with people not following government rules.

“What we found in Chandos Recreation Ground NW9 is ridiculous!! 20-30 males playing cricket and running away after seeing police.”

Metropolitan Police Commissioner Cressida Dick warned, that if the public do not obey police instructions it will “result in enforcement.”

The Commissioner said, “It’s extremely important that we all do try to comply with the restrictions and we in the police of course have our part to play.

“If we have to, we will be very firm in that, if somebody completely refuses, but this is an absolute last resort, it will result in enforcement.”

The Health Secretary, Matt Hancock has repeatedly warned Britons not to sunbathe and only go out if it is essential.

This comes after many people are ignoring the governments advice, which is “backed up in law” as groups of people are still gathering in parks and other public spaces.

Parks in Battersea on Saturday were full of people gathering, and also along the River Thames.

Hancock said, “We’re absolutely clear that you should not leave your home unless it’s for one of four reasons: for medical reasons, to buy food, to go to work if you can’t work at home and for exercise.”

He added that the rules are there for the protection of public health, these are “backed up in law.”

“It is not a request, it is a requirement in law and people need to follow it.

“I just say this to the very small minority of people who are choosing to flout the guidance, you are putting others’ lives at risk.”

President of the Federation of American Scientists Ali Nouri warned the public may not be “going back to our daily lives” until 2021.

Dr Nouri says normal life cannot resume until a vaccine has been created, and warned coronavirus could resurge in several ways without a proper vaccine.

He added, “There’s not going to be a time when there is a magic date and then everybody goes back to their lives as normal.”
