Photos are being shared on Twitter this morning showing a crammed London Underground trains, despite the Coronavirus taking hold across the country.
The current advice from the government is not to travel unless it is necessary, and to avoid social contact – and stay 2m away from people.
Fred Scott, one of the passengers on the Tube, and who tweeted one of the photos, said: “On a 6:40 train from Upton Park going to Hammersmith. If 1 person on here has the virus then that will affect others, who will take that elsewhere. Lockdown needed.”
Another passenger, Kubson, asked Transport for London on twitter “where is my southbound train? I’m on the platform @colindale since 6 am and no sight of the train, platform is full of people, thanks for nothing!!!”
@duckpilotuk also tweeted a picture: “TFL has reduced the frequency of London Underground trains, which are now busier than they should be. Not much social distancing on the Piccadilly Line this morning. I am classed as a ‘key worker’ and rely on the Tube.”
