UK (United Kingdom) health officials said on Monday that coronavirus is spreading more rapidly in London than in other parts of the UK.

And today, Sadiq Khan, the Mayor of London, will join the government's emergency Cobra meeting for the first time.

He's been on TV this morning, talking about school closures ( see our earlier post), and he has also been discussing the logistics of life in the capital.

The city's transport network could be massively scaled back in the coming weeks, he told Good Morning Britain.

"What we may do over the course of the next few days is go to a Saturday or Sunday service during the week and then maybe even scale that down even more over the course of the next few days and weeks," he said.
