The UK goes into full lockdown with the British public ordered to stay at home.
People will only be allowed to leave their home to do essential work, exercise or buy food or medicine.
Boris Johnson said:
"From this evening I must give the British people a very simple instruction - you must stay at home," Johnson said in a televised statement from his Downing Street residence."
All non-essential shops, premises and places of worship will be closed down, with weddings and baptisms banned.
"You should not be meeting friends," Johnson told the UK.
