A LETTER from Boris Johnson will land on the doorsteps of 30 million households across all four UK nations from next week as part of a £5.8 million campaign.

The Prime Minister has outlined guidance everyone should follow and the measures the Government has put in place to curb the spiking number of Covid-19 infections recorded.

Mr Johnson who is currently self-isolating at Downing Street after testing positive for the virus said: "We know things will get worse before they get better.

"But we are making the right preparations, and the more we all follow the rules, the fewer lives will be lost and the sooner life can return to normal.

"I want to thank everyone who is working flat out to beat the virus, in particular the staff in our fantastic NHS and care sector across England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.

"It has been truly inspirational to see our doctors, nurses and other carers rise magnificently to the needs of the hour. "

He also announced that thousands of retired doctors and nurses are set to return to the NHS and hundreds of thousands of citizens are volunteering to help the most vulnerable.
