The coronavirus isthe most serious challenge we have faced in a generation and I know it’s causing huge alarm and distress toallof us. Together we will defeat it. But to do so we must all follow the Government’s instruction to stay at home, only go outside for food, health reasons or if we are keyworkers and cannot work from home.
My team isworking flat out with partners from across the police, the health service, local government, transport colleagues, businessand many other organisations to do all that we can to help stop its spread and protect our health and our economy. I pay tribute toall our key workers, whoare doing extraordinary work in extraordinary circumstances.
And I want to thank you for allthatyou’re doing across our communities to help.
