UK coronavirus news
More than a half of Britons think Prime Minister Boris Johnson's government was too slow to order a lockdown to slow the spread of coronavirus, an opinion poll published on Thursday showed.
The Ipsos MORI poll, carried out online March 27-30 showed 56% of people believed the government's enforcement of social distancing measures were taken too late, compared with 4% who felt that they were taken too soon. Ipsos MORI said it interviewed 1,072 British adults aged 18-75.

In Thursday's briefing, health secretary Matt Hancock said that by the end of April they will be conducting 100,000 coronavirus tests per day. He also stated that the UK has a five-pillar strategy on testing and also that they had started building a 'large diagnostics industry', something that was needed as, unlike say Germany, one didn't already exist.
