The government's new coronavirus lockdown slogan has been ridiculed by Twitter users who have rehashed the 'stay alert, control the virus, save lives' graphics into hilarious parodies.
The new messaging was introduced ahead of Boris Johnson's latest lockdown announcement on Sunday, after ministers moved away from the 'Stay at Home' messaging.
It provoked much ridicule on social media with Twitter users creating their own versions.
