On Monday afternoon, PM Boris Johnson announced the national emergency to save lives from coronavirus. In a televised address, Johson ordered British people to stay at home and can only leave the house one time per day. All gatherings of more than 2 people have been banned and will be dispersed by police, if necessary.

The Prime Minister also announced that the UK government will stop all social events, including weddings, baptisms and other ceremonies, but excluding funerals.

PM Boris Johnson said in a statement that he was not looking forward to taking these measures but that they are essential to slow down the spread of coronavirus and ease the pressure on NHS.

Here is the list of what's allowed: 

1. shopping for basic necessities, as infrequently as possible
2. one form of exercise a day -a run, walk, or cycle - alone or with members of your household
3. any medical need, to provide care or to help a vulnerable person
4. traveling to and from work, but only where this is absolutely necessary and cannot be done from home.

In terms of the measures announced, there will be a fine associated with anyone breaking the rule. The UK is two or three weeks behind Italy in terms of the progress of the outbreak. PM Johnson will review the announced measures in three weeks from today. 

"I urge you at this moment of national emergency to stay at home, protect our NHS and save lives," concluded the Prime Minister.
