Streets in Glasgow is now a place of empty people amid the Corona virus pandemic. People are now taking the Government’s advice seriously to stay indoors.

The new Guidance says people should only leave their home for one out of four major reasons.

  • Shopping for basic things that is needed at home like food and medicine.
  • A form of exercise each day.
  • Any medical need, or to provide care to help a vulnerable person.
  • Travelling to and from work only when necessary and can’t be done from home.

According to scientist, a gathering of more than two people should be avoided because it can increase the spread of the pandemic disease
