“This is insanity. Britain needs to properly lockdown – NOW.”

He continued: “How many crucial NHS heroes are millions of non-essential workers infecting with #Coronavirus right now on the transport system up & down Britain, thus risking their health/lives & removing them from the frontline?

“None of this Govt. strategy makes any sense.”

Piers also reiterated: “The fact Britain’s 3 most important people in the battle against Coronavirus have gone down on the same day says everything about our woeful & I fear disastrous social distancing strategy.
