Is the government doing enough to fight the Coronavirus outbreak?

Rory Stewart is an independent candidate to be Mayor of London. He says that the government, and incumbent mayor Sadiq Khan, are not taking the Coronavirus pandemic seriously enough.

He’s calling for the closure of schools, cancellation of all public gatherings and extensive self-isolation. If necessary, he says he would deploy the army onto the streets of the UK.
