The UK Prime Minister has urged celebrators to ‘spare others the risk of catching a very dangerous disease’ amid the global coronavirus pandemic. 

Coronavirus was classed a pandemic by the World Health Organization (WHO) last week, leading countries such as Italy, Spain, China and the UK to implement nationwide lockdowns. 

Politician Boris, 55, said in a message by The Mail On Sunday: ‘The sad news is that means staying away. This year the best thing is to ring her, videocall her, Skype her, but avoid unnecessary physical contact or proximity.

‘And why? Because if your mother is elderly or vulnerable, then I am afraid all the statistics show that she is much more likely to die from coronavirus.

We cannot disguise or sugar-coat the threat. The numbers are stark, and they are accelerating. We are only two or three weeks behind Italy. 

The Italians have a superb health system, yet their doctors and nurses have been overwhelmed by the demand. The death toll there is already in the thousands and climbing. 

Unless we act together in Britain, unless we make the heroic and collective national effort to slow the spread, then it is all too likely that our own NHS will be similarly overwhelmed.

That is why this country has taken the steps that it has, imposing restrictions never seen before either in peace or war. We have closed schools, pubs, bars, restaurants and gyms, and we are asking people to stay and work at home if they possibly can.

 To help businesses and workers through the crisis, we have come up with unprecedented packages of support. All of this is putting our country, and our society, under enormous strain. 

But already this crisis is also bringing out the best in us all – in the army of volunteers that has sprung up to help the vulnerable, in the millions of acts of kindness, in the work of all the people who are continuing to provide essential services – from transport workers to supermarket staff to health and social care workers.  

Yes, this disease is forcing us apart – at least physically. But it is also the crucible in which we are already forging new bonds of togetherness and altruism and sharing. This country will be changed by coronavirus, but there is every reason to think we will come through it stronger and better than ever before.

And the more effectively we follow the medical advice, the faster we will bounce back to health – medically and economically. 

So this Mother’s Day let’s do everything we can to show our respect and love to those who gave us life – and minimise the risk to their own lives. 

Bit by bit, day by day, we are all helping to delay the spread of the disease and to give our amazing NHS staff the time to prepare for the peak. 

So follow the advice, send your love to your mother by phone or video-call. Stay at home, protect our NHS, and together we will save thousands of lives.’
