Boris Johnson calls COVID-19 "worst public health concern for a generation"
British Prime Minister Boris Johnson stepped up the UK's response to the coronavirus outbreak on Thursday after an emergency meeting, moving to a "delay phase" which includes the option of more strict measures designed to slow down the spread of the virus.

During Johnson's statement on Thursday, he called the COVID-19 pandemic the "worst public health concern for a generation" and says that "many more families will lose a loved one before their time."

This comes as the government's chief scientific advisor said that Britain likely has between 5,000 and 10,000 people infected with coronavirus.
