LONDON: To contain the spread of the novel coronavirus, more than 158,000 people have signed up to help Britain’s National Health Service. 

According to ITV, a quarter of a million volunteers offered help merely hours after a request was made.

The health ministry and National Health Service declined immediate comment.

The death toll from coronavirus in the United Kingdom jumped on Tuesday by 87 to a total of 422 - the biggest daily increase since the crisis began.

Britain had called for 250,000 volunteers to help the National Health Service and vulnerable people hit by the coronavirus crisis.
