Coronavirus: Nicola Sturgeon outlines coronavirus 'lockdown'

First Minister Nicola Sturgeon has said the introduction of stringent restrictions to deal with coronavirus are unprecedented, and effectively a "lockdown".

She reiterated the prime minister's announcement urging people to stay at home.

The first minister said that the only permissible reasons for leaving your home are:

  • Essential shopping - once a day
  • Exercise - once a day
  • Medical reasons or the care of the vulnerable
  • Travel to essential work
