Johnson outlined the emergency measures after meeting with health chiefs as UK cases keep rising.

“There is no escaping the reality that these measures will cause severe disruption across our country for many months. The best scientific advice is that this will help us slow the disease and save lives,” the prime minister said.

He added authorities were considering the question of banning major public events to contain the spread of the virus.
