A major new awareness campaign is urging people to pretend they are dealing with the coronavirus in the midst of a record number of deaths and infections every day.
Now that hospitals are on the verge of collapse and there is no sign of any delay, it is feared that the British will not play by the rules as strictly as they did during the first blockade.
On Friday, the government launched a TV commercial that urged people to continue to respect the restrictions.
In front of him stands the head doctor of England, who tells the viewers to stay at home and behave as they did.
In a solemn warning to the nation, Professor Whitty said that the Covid-19, especially the new version, is spreading rapidly across the country. This exposes many people to serious illnesses and places a heavy burden on our NHS.
Again: We all have to stay home. If you have to go outside, keep this in mind: Wash your hands, cover your face inside and stay away from other people.
Vaccines offer some hope for the future, but for now we all need to stay home, protect the NHS and save lives.
Chris Whitty says people should stay home.
The campaign consists of a series of TV and radio commercials and a social media blitz.
Prime Minister Boris Johnson called on the audience to respond to the call to stay home.
He said hospitals have been under more pressure than ever since Covid-19 appeared and infection rates continue to rise alarmingly throughout England.
He said: The vaccine has given us new hope in the fight against the virus, but we must not rest on our laurels.
The NHS is in a desperate situation and we must take measures to protect it so that our doctors and nurses can continue to save lives and vaccinate as many people as possible as soon as possible.

I know it was successful last year, but your respect for the rules is more important than ever.
So I have to urge everyone again to stay home, protect the NHS and save lives.
This comes after the UK recorded the deadliest day in the history of the pandemic: As of Friday, 1,325 deaths due to the coronavirus have been reported in the last 24 hours.
Another record number of new Covid cases was also confirmed with 68,053 positive test results.
Meanwhile, a new analysis shows that more than half of the major hospitals in England now have more Covid 19 patients than at the peak of the first wave.
The crisis is particularly acute in London, where Mayor Sadiq Khan yesterday announced a major operation and said the spread of the virus was getting out of hand.
