  • Use your imagination very much to see where we might have to go, and we will think about this very, very actively in the next 24 hours.

  • We need to think about the kinds of measures that we've seen elsewhere.

  • Other countries that have bean forced to bring in restrictions on on people's movements altogether.

  • But he can only really be preserved in everybody acts responsibly on Dhe conforms with those principles of staying apart from one another and social distancing.

  • I know it's I know it's hard, but that's that's the best way forward.

  • We can't do that.

  • Then, yeah, I'm afraid we're going to have to bring forward tougher, tougher measures.

  • But have these words come too late?

  • Clearly, in parts of the country, some people have not been following the advice to social distance.

  • This was Columbia Flower Market in east London this afternoon, like it's several other markets and parks in the capital.

  • People were out in crowds socializing in close quarters despite a clear warning from the mayor.

  • Don't leave your home unless you really, really have to work from home.

  • Don't use public transport unless it's genuinely essential.

  • Look out for your neighbors who are elderly on vulnerable deuce and shopping for them.

  • Leave it on their doorstep.

  • But it's not just the springtime mood apparently engulfing some in the country.

  • That's the problem.

  • Witness the queues outside some supermarkets to standing this closely together goes against advice on social distancing.

  • But can ordinary people really be blamed when advice from government has changed so quickly on that time seemed conflicting.

  • On Friday, the prime minister suggested he would visit his elderly mother.

  • Today.

  • I'll certainly be sending my very best wishes and hope to get to see you today, he wrote in two newspapers, The Sunday Times on the Sun, urging People don't visit Mom today.

  • The Sunday Times also alleges the prime minister's chief advisor, Dominic Cummings, had initially been keen for the country to adopt a policy one observer characterized as herd immunity and let the old people die, but had been convinced shutting down the country was a better option.

  • After seeing what was happening in Italy, Downing Street denounced the report, saying it was a highly defamatory fabrication.

  • Channel four News has learned that French authorities were preparing to shut down the border with the UK on Friday afternoon.

  • Franz has imposed a strict locked down and President Macron is said to have been furious at Britain for not taking more stringent measures to tackle Corona virus.

  • We understand the plan to close the border with any dropped when France was told the UK would now be taking a tougher line.

  • And while questions continue to be asked about who or what is actually driving government policy already people are dealing with Corona virus At its worst.

  • This is actor Sophia Myles saying goodbye to her father, who died in the last 24 hours.

  • She posted this picture to remind people of the harsh reality.

  • Look, I've just come from inside Downing Street from inside that briefing and I think it's fair to say the prime minister is clearly still very reluctant to impose the kind of lock down that we've seen in France, Italy, Spain.

  • His tone was still very much an encouraging one, but also a warning.

  • They're saying Look, if you don't follow these measures, we will have to try and bring in further measures, he warned against congregation telling people stay at home if you can, but if you do go outside and it is still OK to go outside and take a walk in the park.

  • But you need to know congregate, stay two meters apart.

  • It's not that difficult, he said.

  • The other thing that we're hearing now is that prime minister insists very much that he is still being guided by the science and that is influencing a love, the government's decisions.

  • He is absolutely insistent on that point in terms of measures.

  • The big thing that we're hearing is that the introduction of this world policy that they're calling shielding I one and 1/2 1,000,000 people who are considered to be the most vulnerable there's with counsel, severe respiratory disease.

  • Is there going to be contacted by the N HS via letter or phone or texts and told to stay at home for 12 weeks?

  • So that's not social distancing.

  • That's a further measure for those who are most vulnerable, and that's the next stage in the government, our policy very consistent.

  • They are being guided by science on, not politics.

  • Jackie Thanks Specimen.

  • The Home Office has confirmed the first case of Corona virus in an immigration detention center after a woman being held at yards would in bed future tested positive.

  • Home Office officials say the person has been placed in isolation after displaying symptoms on no one else.

  • Amongst our for detainees has tested positive.

  • Campaigners are calling for the release of hundreds of detainees because of the risk that they or staff could contract the virus.

  • Joining me now is Professor Helen Ward, clinical professor of public health at Imperial College, London.

  • Thanks very much for joining us this evening.

  • I just wonder what you make at the latest advice coming from the prime minister.

  • Well, there's a lot of public health specialist senior leaders who have been discussing this over the weekend, and I think most of them, like me, will be very disappointed.

  • It seems to me that they're all next messages.

  • I know that the prime minister said that people should reduce their social contacts outside of the home, but has not yet done anything to enforce that going back to the science, which he says is guiding everything they do the work that came out.

  • Imperial College said that those social contacts outside the home after reduced by 75%.

  • If this is going to work now, it's clear from what's been shown today that is not happening yet and therefore closures off some of the shops that are not necessary.

  • Some of their parks, et cetera, are going to have to be enforced.

  • But more importantly, I think making some restrictions on travel on unnecessarily travel the moment is all voluntary and unfortunately, people are not sure that they want to do that.

  • I mean, were you surprised to hear the prime minister again today?

  • It was gently appealing to people to do the right thing when it would seem certainly from the evidence of what we've been filming today.

  • People are not doing it, certainly not enough of them.

  • Were you surprised that he didn't take a tougher stance?

  • I was surprised because I think that the evidence from elsewhere in the world is that you have to take a really trust us, and you have to take it early.

  • You have to have the places that have actually got this under control and got numbers of cases starting to go down new cases like South Korea, they have had a major investment in testing.

  • Very, very widespread testing contact tracing on dhe reduction in social contacts we have if you think you're gonna put these measures in place in four days time.

  • If it doesn't work now, four days is a lot of extra cases.

  • So I think last week when we had the pub, some clubs and don't go to them, but not enforced.

  • We lost four days and then they enforced it.

  • I think we are urging the prime minister on the government to take the bold steps that it necessary now and not wait another four day.

  • It is, as you say, quite interesting all the way along.

  • The government seemed to have been reluctant to take what he said today with draconian measures.

  • So we saw other people leading So for example, at the same time as he was saying, mass gathering sport could go ahead.

  • We then had the Premier League moving in and saying We're gonna cancel games today.

  • He's still saying two people be responsible going out into the parks.

  • But we have some parks across London being closed by local authorities.

  • Why do you think he is so slow or in your view, he's so slow to enforce these things?

  • Well, he actually opposes it in terms of a joke.

  • Oniy in sort of crap clamp down as opposed doing people enjoying themselves.

  • And I think that's the wrong message to be given to people.

  • But it's one of the other.

  • I think you have to say this is an emergency.

  • We have to get people to comply with this and we have to do that at a local level.

  • And I think local authorities quite right to be taking these measures, and they need to have the backing of the government to enforce them.

  • But it's not just that a lot of communities and shops and other things are actually doing the right thing.

  • They are closing down and shifting towards supporting the most vulnerable we've got.

  • Hotels are saying that they're going to be available capacity for whether it's for the N.

  • H s or some have suggested for refuges for people suffering domestic violence, of the results of the isolation.

  • There's many things that could be done, but the primes, it does seem to want to be one step behind.

  • And do you worry that he says he's being led by the science but actually is being led by his political instinct?

  • It said that he hates the idea of nanny state interventions.

  • Do you worry that it's politics rather than science, that is leading him?

  • I think that the science that is informing this husband good do you think there's a lack of experienced public health leadership in helping the government make those decisions?

  • We do have the CMO in the scientific advisor, but there is a huge network of public health expertise around the country that I don't think of being drawn enough people.

  • But we're communicable.

  • Disease control Experts have been planning for epidemics and pendants for years.

  • I don't hear their voices enough influencing governments.

  • We are being repeatedly told that we're two weeks behind Italy and we are seeing horrific numbers of deaths coming out of Italy.

  • Is it too late to delay that level of fatalities here?

  • T do something about it.

  • If we want to stop things, if we're two weeks behind, then we have two weeks to stop that incense and we have to start today because It's the infections that occurring today that is spreading in Colombia flower market, for example, those the infections that in two weeks trying will be causing deaths and intensive care use.

  • And that's what we have to try and stop now.

  • And so you think enforcement has to come now?

  • I think that has to be clear.

  • A messaging.

  • I think that it is different in different parts of the world.

  • It's not just about limiting contact between individuals and spread that way.

  • It's also between hot spots like London on other parts of the country.

  • I think we need to look carefully about limiting travel between areas.

  • So so, for example, just very briefly in Germany today we see no gatherings of more than two people outside of home and work potential fines if social distancing measures aren't and here too, are those the sorts of measures we should at least be thinking about.

  • Now I think we should be and I think we will almost certainly have to bring them in, but it takes time, so we need to start that now not say I were going to think about it and maybe do it next week next week is another several tens of thousands of cases and more pressure on matches on more deaths.

  • Professor Helen Ward, Thank you so much for talking to us.

  • Thank you.

  • According to the government, when we're out and about, we should be trying as much as possible to stay two meters.

  • That's roughly the length of our microphone pole away from other people.

  • So somewhere like this, we can do it.

  • And I'm at least two meters away from cameraman Neil at the moment.

  • But when you're walking along the pavement, for example, with other people cutting past you, if you're queuing up to buy an ice cream, not two meters and so increasingly we're being asked to just stay at home.
