Boris Johnson: I can confirm that we are past the peak of this Coronavirus disease

Boris Johnson #StayHomeSaveLives
I can confirm that we are past the peak of this disease. We are past the peak and we are on the downward slope. And we have so many reasons to be hopeful for the long term. But we can only defeat coronavirus by our collective discipline and working together.

Earlier Johnson said: "I know how hard and how stressful it has been to give up even temporarily those ancient and basic freedoms, not seeing friends, not seeing loved ones, working from home, managing the kids, worrying about your job and your firm."

"So let me say directly also to British business, to the shopkeepers, to the entrepreneurs, to the hospitality sector, to everyone on whom our economy depends: I understand your impatience, I share your anxiety."

Tonight I proudly clapped outside 10 Downing Street for our fantastic NHS and carers. Thank you all for everything you are doing.  "But I must ask you to keep going in the way that you have kept going so far, so we can protect our NHS and save lives."

It is hard to find the words to express my debt to the NHS for saving my life. The efforts of millions of people across this country to stay home are worth it. Together we will overcome this challenge, as we have overcome so many challenges in the past.

"Keeping the R down is going to be absolutely vital to our recovery, and we can only do it by our collective discipline and working together."
