Manchester United legend Gary Neville has been extremely vocal on social media about UK's handling of the coronavirus outbreak in the country. With the confirmed cases in the country soaring past 1,300, British prime minister Boris Johnson and his government have so far delayed taking any drastic measure to prevent a further outbreak in the country. Boris Johnson has even been criticised on social media with '#WhereIsBoris' trending on Twitter as early as this past weekend.

Contrastingly, the United States has been extremely proactive in dealing with the outbreak as the government has already declared an emergency in the country. Several states across the country are closing down all outlets in an attempt to prevent coronavirus from spreading. Former US president Barack Obama has also been quite active on social media, urging citizens to remain at home and try to contribute as much as possible in containing the coronavirus outbreak.

Gary Neville used Barack Obama's stand towards mass awareness to call out Boris Johnson on social media. Neville expressed his blunt views on Twitter criticising the leadership in the country. The Manchester United legend even tagged Boris Johnson on his post.
