@PHE_uk job will made much easier if everyone follows the instructions: wash your hands, stay home and avoid visiting vulnerable people if you’re feeling ill. 2/n
More specific measures (eg sportscevents gatherings etc) should be brought in, but a Chinese style lockdown is not possible in a Western democracy. And ask yourself - what did Italy’s implementation of local lockdowns achieve? Very little it seems. 3/n
