I listened to the whole of the UK government announcement(the three chaps including the PM) and could see that the government is really stuck between a Scylla and Charybdis.

The Scylla of covid19 and the Charybdis of the economy failing.
I think that without hindsight there is no really a good choice to make at the moment.

If everyone is asked to work from home - transport, hospitality and other sectors will suffer greatly.
If everyone can go about there everyday business, covid19 will probably spread and transport, hospitality and other sectors will suffer greatly.

The 'flattening the curve' approach that the UK government is taking does seem to be a sensible one to me.

I have been out of work for a week, on holiday, but reading through my emails today I see we have been asked to work from home.
The interesting part, the email does not mention for how long - everyone is flying blind on this.
