Brits urged to give a nationwide round of applause to thank hardworking NHS staff – The Sun

BRITS are being urged to give a nationwide round of applause as a thank-you to hardworking NHS staff.

The #ClapForOurCarers campaign aims to get people across the country clapping in a show of gratitude for their work during the coronavirus pandemic.

Everyone is being asked to give an ovation to frontline health staff – whether it is from their living rooms, front doors or gardens – at 8pm this Thursday.

Organisers say they want to “show all nurses, doctors, GPs and carers our appreciation for their ongoing hard work against this virus”.

It comes as the death toll in the UK rises to 233, with 4,145 people infected with the virus.

The new deaths were recorded for the whole of the UK in the biggest leap yet.


In further developments on Saturday:

  • A Government “war room” has been set up, including food retail executives, to tackle panic buying;
  • Boris Johnson urged Brits not to see their mums on Mother’s Day today — to shield them from the ­virus, and;
  • NHS boss Stephen Powis said panic buyers “should be ashamed” of depriving nurses of the chance to get food.
