Government ramps up testing effort

We have launched a new plan to dramatically ramp up Coronavirus testing so that by the end of this month, we can carry out 100,000 tests every day in England. But in the meantime, the most important thing to do is for people to stay at home

Beware of fake virus news

The Government’s Rapid Response Unit is continuing to work with departments across Whitehall and social media companies to combat the spread of false information about coronavirus - ensuring the public has the right information to protect themselves and save lives.

PM writes to every household

The Prime Minister is writing a letter to every household across the UK, outlining the guidance everyone must follow. The letter also thanks our NHS and social care staff who are working round the clock, as well as the more than 750,000 people who have volunteered to protect others.

"Your NHS needs you" - join the volunteer army

The NHS has issued a call for volunteers to support the 1.5 million extremely vulnerable people who have been asked to stay at home to shield themselves from coronavirus for twelve weeks.

Prime Minister: "Stay home, Protect our NHS, Save lives"

The Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, has made a statement to the nation as to what action we must ALL take to protect ourselves, our families and our communities from the Coronavirus. These include strict restrictions to prevent the spread of the virus. Please read carefully.

The message is clear "Stay Safe - Save Lives!"

We can turn the tide against coronavirus in the next twelve weeks – everyone will need to help to ensure people get the support they need to stay at home. This will mean we can protect our NHS and save thousands of lives.
