The British must be held accountable in front of the Covid-19

London.- The British government asked citizens this Saturday to behave responsibly and avoid emptying supermarket shelves and moving around the country so as not to increase the spread of the new coronavirus.
The progression of Covid-19 accelerated in the UK in recent days, causing 177 deaths, AFP said.
Restless, the British rushed to the stores and emptied the shelves of packages of pasta, preserves and rolls of toilet paper.
At a press conference this Saturday, Environment Minister George Eustice called on the population to "be responsible when shopping and think of others."

The minister ruled out the possibility of the government introducing rationing measures, stressing that most supermarkets have already established limits on the purchase of certain products on their own initiative.
Eustice said that the British should "calm down and buy only what they need."
"We should all be ashamed of what is happening, it is unacceptable," said Stephen Powis, national medical director of the NHS, the British public health system, who recalled that health workers have difficulties buying food after work.
A nurse named Dawn posted a video on social media showing tears in her eyes after failing to find fruits and vegetables at the supermarket.
Helen Dickinson, head of the British Retail Consortium, explained that the industry faces a "peak demand" comparable to Christmas "without the four months of preparation." But he said there were "many foods in the supply chain."
