By Kate HoeyThe coronaviruses are spreading in Britain, with a new coronaviral pandemic affecting all aspects of our lives.
The country is struggling with a number of health problems including a rise in cases and deaths, with the number of cases in hospital rising more than 500 per cent in the past year, with coronavid fever rising by 30 per cent.
The Government is set to introduce a national coronavillavirus vaccination drive for people who are already in contact with others who have the virus.
The move comes amid fears that coronavids are being brought to the UK as a result of the travel ban on the island of St Lucia, which was lifted last week, and the closure of borders in the Bahamas and St Kitts and Nevis.
More than 3,000 people have tested positive for the virus in Britain.
It has been spreading quickly, with many people turning up sick in the days following the travel bans, with up to 30 per day.
There have been concerns that the new coronovirus may be a strain that is easier to transmit.
However, the government says it has already detected the virus and is working to limit the spread.
The Prime Minister said he would announce new measures on Thursday.
“This is a new, complex and dangerous pandemic,” he said.
“We are now faced with a pandemic of unprecedented proportions, and a number a measures are being put in place to protect people and the economy.”
