"The UK's strategy is to keep a constant trickle over a period of time to avoid multiple peaks as far as possible"
From the graphs I've seen, the UK is so far around the same as Italy at the same stage. In other words, within 2-3 weeks the UK's health system will be flooded regardless of any measures taken now, and if there isn't an immediate increase in restrictions, it won't be able to cope with new cases in 3-4 weeks' time.
Mind you, still better than the US, where the government seems to think it can stop the virus by writing a lot of cheques
