The meeting started this morning and was attended by a handful of Permanent Secretaries as well as the heads of the police and military.

FBC News expects more information once discussions end later today.
As government ministers decide on the next plan of action, the streets today have been full of people lining up outside supermarkets.
Rumours of a lockdown have led to people stocking up on essential supplies – despite earlier assurances from the Health Ministry that there will be ample warning if any such action is taken.
