Coronavirus in UK spurs 20,000 troops placed on standby

Around 20,000 military personnel have been placed on standby in the UK to help public services as part of a ’COVID Support Force’, as dozens of underground train stations closed across London Thursday, and officials said schools will close in the coming days. Those called to service will handle tasks such as driving oxygen tankers, support the police and boost hospital capacity.
