Boris Johnson gets it—er, I mean, the British Prime Minister gets that coronavirus is a real problem, especially since he has gotten covid-19:
Over the last 24 hours I have developed mild symptoms and tested positive for coronavirus.
I am now self-isolating, but I will continue to lead the government’s response via video-conference as we fight this virus.

Stay at home, protect the national health system, and save lives. That’s exactly what we need to hear from our leaders, and exactly what we need to do.
Hmm… in the midst of a public health crisis, is “national clap” really the best term to use for a public expression of support for healthcare workers?
