UK Govt Rolls Out ‘Act Like You’ve Got It’ Drive
UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson took to social media to urge people to strictly follow the stay-at-home lockdown as the disease continues to spread at an alarming rate. Our hospitals are under more pressure than at any other time since the start of the pandemic, and infection rates continue to soar at an alarming rate, Johnson said in a Twitter statement.Advertisement
The vaccine rollout has given us renewed hope, but it’s critical for now we stay at home, protect the NHS and save lives, he said. The warnings come a day after London Mayor Sadiq Khan declared a major incident in the UK capital because the coronavirus cases are out of control as latest figures revealed the infection rate in London has exceeded 1,000 per 100,000 people, with hospitals over-capacity with patients.
