Coronavirus, lockdown: police patrols in the streets
Metropolitan Police Officer seen clearing crowds from Shepherd’s Bush Green in London – and ordering them to go home.”The government has a lockdown in force, can you please get off the green – go home.” Police confirmed no one had been arrested following the incident but confirmed officers were patrolling the city centre. But anyone who break the rules could be fined up to £1,000 or even arrest when officers are given emergency powers.
Police will be out as usual to patrolling the streets of London. They will speak to people about the new restrictions to help reduce the spread of COVID-19. If officers suspect anyone to be in breach of the restrictions, they will speak to them, explain what the restrictions require them to do and ask them to comply in order to help prevent the spread of the virus and ultimately save lives
The Prime Minister‘s order will last for an initial three weeks, when it will be reviewed to see whether the contagion rate is down. Speaking during a special TV broadcast last night, Mr Johnson said that without a huge national effort to halt the growth of this virus, there will come a moment when no health service in the world could possibly cope.
“Because there won’t be enough ventilators, enough intensive care beds, enough doctors and nurses. If you don’t follow the rules the police will have the powers to enforce them, including through fines and dispersing gatherings.”
