Matt Hancock pledges to fight coronavirus with 'everything we've got'

Health Secretary Matt Hancock says that the Government is continuing to fight the coronavirus with everything at its disposal.

He said: “Coronavirus is the most serious public health emergency that has faced the world in this century. We are all targets, but the disease reserves its full cruelty for the weakest and the most vulnerable.

“And to defeat it we are proposing extraordinary measures of the kind never seen before in peacetime. Our goal is to protect life and to protect every part of the NHS.

“And this Bill, jointly agreed with all four UK governments, gives us the power to fight the virus with everything we’ve got.”
