Watch out, everyone, here come the Coronavirus Cops, enjoying their little slice of power way too much

Re: Peak District

Not only that, but by driving they risked having a car accident that would require the call out of an ambulance.

1. Ambulances are better used for transporting actual sick people at the moment

2. The walkers and the ambulance staff would be at risk of exposure

Then what if they happened to injure themselves badly enough while out walking to require the emergency services? The above comments apply, as well as:

1. If they injured themselves in a remote area and couldn't walk out or be stretchered out by the ambulance crew, a rescue team and possibly a helicopter would be required.

Rescue teams are made up of volunteers that would need to be called out and who would then potentially be exposed to the virus or would expose the walkers to the virus. If a helicopter is required to airlift them out, this take the helicopter out of service for transporting critically ill patients potentially and again potentially exposes everyone.

The request to not drive is to reduce the impact on the emergency services in the event of you having an accident.

"According to the Evening News, Saunders claimed that neither the charity nor the council helped him when he raised the alarm, which he said prompted him to go to the newspaper."
