Health Secretary Matt Hancock has begged Britons to keep at house this weekend because the UK is ready for a mini-heatwave.
Mr Hancock informed a press convention at Downing Street: “We can not relax our discipline now, if we do people will die.”
Ruth May, chief nurse at Nightingale Hospital, requested Britons to bear in mind the 2 registered nurses who’ve died when deciding whether or not to exit this weekend.
It comes because the Department of Health confirmed 684 extra people have died in hospital after testing optimistic for coronavirus, bringing the overall deaths within the UK to 3,605.
During the press convention, Mr Hancock gave an “instruction” for people to proceed to keep at house this weekend, even when the climate proves good.
He mentioned: “We are set for a heat weekend in some components of the nation.
“But the illness remains to be spreading and we completely can not afford to relax the social distancing measures we have in place.
“We can not relax our discipline now. If we do, people will die.
“I finish with the recommendation we all know. This recommendation is not a request – it’s an instruction.
“Stay at house, defend lives and then you definitely will be doing all of your half.”
England’s chief nursing officer Ruth May has urged members of the general public not to be tempted to go outdoors within the forecast sunny climate this weekend and bear in mind the 2 nurses who died after contracting Covid-19.
Two nurses, Areema Nasreen and Aimee O’Rourke, each of their 30s, have died after contracting the virus.
In the each day Downing Street press convention, Ms May mentioned: “This weekend goes to be very heat and it will be very tempting to exit and revel in these summer time rays.
“But please, I ask to bear in mind Aimee and Areema. Please keep at house for them.”
Ms May expressed her condolences to their households, pals and colleagues and mentioned she feared additional nurses will die.
She mentioned: “They were one of us, they were one of my profession, of the NHS family. I worry that there’s going to be more and I want to honour them today and recognise their service.”
