“You’re killing people!”: The cop of the moment yells at the man walking down the street while claiming he has the coronavirus

A furious policeman is seen screaming at a man who claims to have the deadly coronavirus to “go home” more than a dozen times as he warns him “you are killing people”.

The video of the officer riding a bicycle that warns the man, standing on a street in Perth, Scotland, emerged that he will be arrested if he does not isolate himself.

It comes when legislation was passed that allows police to fine those who disobey the British government’s blocking rules following the outbreak of the virus, which has so far killed more than 570 in the UK.

Scottish Prime Minister Nicola Sturgeon said that the powers could be introduced in Scotland today.

A police officer repeatedly tells the man to ‘go home’ after he appears to be nodding when asked if he has Covid-19.

The footage begins with four policemen on bicycles on an apparently deserted Perth High Street.

The screams can then be heard as one of the officers approaches a lone male with a blue top and gray pants.

As the man approaches the officer, he is warned to “stay behind”.

The officer continues to extend his hand, trying to keep a distance between himself and the man.

A comment is made, prompting the officer to ask, “So you have Covid-19?”

The frustrated agent continues to tell the man to “go home” before shouting “you’re killing people.”

After being invited more than a dozen times to return home, the man eventually begins to leave the scene.

The man seems to nod his head, prompting the officer to reply: “In that case, you have to go home and isolate yourself.”

He adds: “If I see you again, you will go to prison.”

With the man who seems not to listen to the request, the officer becomes increasingly frustrated, shouting “come home” more than a dozen times in less than a minute.

At one point the agent says, ‘Are you telling me you have it? Well, go home and isolate yourself. You’re killing people, go home. ‘

As the video ends, the man is seen leaving the scene.

Scotland has nearly 900 confirmed coronavirus cases, with 25 people dead.

Yesterday, the death toll in the UK rose from 475 to 578, health officials confirmed, with 11,658 confirmed cases.

Emergency legislation has now been passed in Westminster which allows police to fine those who break the rules for social expulsion.

New powers given to the police in England mean that no one will be allowed to leave their home “without reasonable excuses”.

Those who break the rules could receive a fixed penalty of £ 60, reduced to £ 30 if paid within 14 days, or a fixed penalty of £ 120 for second-time offenders, doubling on any further recidivism

In Scotland, Prime Minister Nicola Sturgeon said that Scottish police could receive new powers today.
