Measures that U.S is taking to reduce spread of Corona and its Impact on Business
Crowds traffic tourists taking selfies another normal day in the heart of London it will be the last one for weeks or months.A samba Prime Minister telling us that all our lives are about to change, coronavirus is accelerating rapidly and so is the government response.Now is the time for everyone to stop non-essential contact with others and to stop all unnecessary travel.We need people to start working from home where they possibly can and people should avoid pubs clubs theaters and other such social venues.The gravity of the situation edged into the PM’s faces.He asked us to put normal life on hold entire families instructed to stay at home for 14 days.If anyone has a temperature or a cough if you or anyone in your household has one of those two symptoms then you should stay at home for 14 days.
That means that if possible you should not go out even to buy food or essentials.And for the elderly those with serious health conditions and pregnant women and even more drastic measure in a few days time by this coming weekend.It will be necessary to go further and to ensure that those with the most serious health conditions are largely shielded from contact from social contact for around 12 weeks.All of this voluntary for now that could change – this is quite a big step change from where we were even four days ago but in other Western European countries in the US they’re going further, still there states of emergency, cities enforced lockdown, families been asked to stay at home even if they are not ill, schools closed.
These the sorts of measures you think the public should expect in the next few days.Well that’s just on where we in relation to others.Don’t forget that if other countries are in different stages in their movement up the curve and we’ve always made it very clear that the crucial thing is timeliness.When you come to more extreme measures like you know curfews and so on and so forth, you’ll see in some of the other countries.You know we’re keeping all measures under review the days and weeks ahead will be like nothing we’ve known.For decades I can’t remember anything like it in my lifetime. I don’t have really been anything like it in peacetime and we have to accept that.It’s a very considerable psychological behavioral change that we’re asking you we’re asking that the public, the nation to do a global pandemic that now requires a wartime effort from us all, today our lives changed they will change even more.
