After President Donald Trump and his wife Melania tested positive for coronavirus, now, the Good Morning Britain’s Dr. Hilary Jones has issued a stark warning about coronavirus on GMB.
As information, the US President and the First Lady confirmed they had contracted Covid-19 in the early hours of Friday morning, after the President’s aide Hope Hicks previously received a positive COVID-19 test.
Dr. Hilary issued a chilling statement about the reality of COVID and branding it an enormous threat to the world.
He said: “It’s the biggest threat to public health for so many decades. The view of many people has been ‘this is really inconvenient, this virus. It’s really inconvenient, this pandemic. But, people haven’t yet taken it seriously and realize that unless we actually all play our part and take responsibility in social distancing right now – until we have a vaccine, if we ever have a vaccine, we can’t assume that.”
The ITV doctor compared the virus to the Spanish Influenza of the early 20th century, which infected 500 million people across the globe.
He said, “This thing will get out of control and it will kill many, many more people like the Spanish flu of 1918. We’re near that yet, unless we get a handle it seriously.”‘
He also urged the viewers to follow the government guidelines to help in the fight against COVID.
