At the UK's daily novel coronavirus media briefing on Sunday afternoon, Robert Jenrick, secretary for housing, communities and local government, announced a shielding measure and said the National Health Service has identified 1.5 million people who are at risk from the virus. These people would be asked to stay at home for at least 12 weeks.

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson also said that the country needs "far, far more" ventilators to support patients who are in critical care.
