Reading Time: < 1 minute

Boris Johnson has told Britons to avoid pubs, clubs, restaurants and theatres and to only make essential journeys in the “national fightback” against coronavirus.

The prime minister told a Downing Street news conference the number of coronavirus cases in the UK could double every five or six days without “drastic action”.

He said that the peak of the epidemic is coming faster in some parts of the country than others, saying London appears to be further ahead than other parts of the UK.
