The UK government has asked mobile carriers like EE, o2 and Vodafone, to send an emergency coronavirus alert today.
It’s the first time all UK carriers have been instructed to send a message to customers on behalf of the government.
The text reads:
GOV.UK CORONAVIRUS ALERT. New rules in force now: you must stay at home. More info and exemptions at gov.uk/coronavirus Stay at home. Protect the NHS. Save lives.
