Coronavirus: Isolation for over-70s ‘within weeks’

Source: BBC

Every Briton over the age of 70 will be told “within the coming weeks” to stay at home for an extended period to shield them from coronavirus, Health Secretary Matt Hancock has said.

He told the BBC the advice will not come into force just yet but when it does it will last “a very long time”.

Wartime-like measures will ask car makers to produce medical equipment and turn hotels into hospitals, he said.

“Every single person in this country is going to be affected,” he warned.

Over-70s – and younger people with certain health conditions – will need to remain at home and have groceries and vital medication delivered, the health secretary said.
