A shocking picture of a suspected coronavirus patient being rushed to hospital in London poses a stark warning to Britons who refuse to to observe social distancing rules ‘making full lockdown of the capital inevitable’.’
Disturbing images show medics carrying an elderly patient from a nursing home in Primrose Hill yesterday as the capital faces Italian-style measures to combat Covid-19.
Masked police officers watch as health workers place the senior citizen in an ambulance outside the Carole House complex.
The images surfaced just hours after Prime Minister Boris Johnson warned people who weren’t following Government advice on social distancing that they have just 24 hours to take the measure seriously.
As an 18-year-old from Coventry, West Midlands, became the youngest person to die of the virus in the UK, Mr Johnson threatened to exert stricter controls to help fight the outbreak.
A source told The Times that a total lockdown could be ‘inevitable’, telling the paper that the PM would have the total support of Cabinet were he to execute the measures.
