‘I know this sounds stupid but this is where the government I feel like just need to either just do the lockdown or not because Tom has to go to work, like his company has not shut down.

In a grim address from Downing Street, he said family reunions, weddings, baptisms and other social events must be cancelled to stop the NHS collapsing under the strain. Funerals can go ahead attended by just a handful of closest relatives.

People must only leave their homes for essential supplies, medical help, or to travel to work if it is ‘absolutely’ unavoidable. Going out for exercise will be allowed once a day, but parks will be patrolled to make sure there is no abuse of the rules.
