He also urged the community to continue to follow government advice, which can be found here.

He said:

“This is the greatest test our NHS has ever faced, an NHS that was already under strain.

“I have every confidence that we have the skills and resources to beat this virus, but only if we take radical steps to reorganise and reprioritise our system.

“Please, now more than ever, practice social distancing because it will save lives.”
