COVID-19 is an infectious disease that has been confirmed in almost 50 million people across the world, while more than one million have died from the virus. ITV Good Morning Britain star Dr Hilary has revealed that the coronavirus is 25 times more lethal than flu.
The UK has seen a sharp rise in the number of coronavirus cases over the past few weeks.
A new nationwide lockdown has now come into effect for a full month, in a bid to stop the spread of the virus.
The number of people dying from coronavirus in the UK is now regularly surpassing 300.
Dr Hilary has responded to claims that a second lockdown isn’t necessary.
“In the last count 24 hours ago, 500 [died] in one day,” said Dr Hilary.
“Is this man really serious, thinking that flu is killing 500 people a day?
“There’s hardly any flu this season, and it wouldn’t kill anything like that even in a bad flu season.
“This COVID-19 virus is a bout 25 times more lethal than ordinary flu for anybody.”
