Boris Johnson says any “world class health service has only limited numbers of doctors, nurses and specialist equipment”, so the more people who become sick at any one time, the harder it is for the NHS to cope.
“It is vital to delay the spread,” he adds. “And with your help we will slow the spread of the disease.”
The PM thanks “everyone who has been following the clear rules set out on Monday”, along with frontline NHS staff and public services.
He also praises all those who have volunteered to help the NHS – a number, he says, equivalent to the population of Coventry.
Mr Johnson concludes by repeating the government’s “core policy” – “stay at home, protect the NHS and save lives”.
