Commenting on the news today (Monday) that the UK is to go into lockdown, UNISON general secretary Dave Prentis said:
“Now the UK has also gone into lockdown, we must all abide by the rules. Irresponsible behaviour will spread the virus and place an intolerable burden on the NHS.
“Health workers are on the front line trying to save lives. By staying home we can all do our bit and help keep them safe too.”
