“It’s a scary thing for a family when your elderly parents, my parents are both in their late 70s and got it two weeks ago from someone in a family bubble but someone who had to go out and was very sensible but got the virus.

“But then bang, it was like dominoes – boom, boom, boom. They had one lunch together and within three days both my mum and dad had COVID-19.

Why is Dr Hilary predicting a national lockdown extension?

“It’s been a long two weeks for our family. It’s long for us because we can’t get in there, but incredibly long for my parents or for anyone that goes through this.”

He predicted: “It’s likely, I think, to be extended.

“Nobody can promise when it will end, because we just don’t know how the virus is going to behave and how the population is going to behave and if people will abide by the restrictions that are being imposed.”

As of now, over one million Brits have tested positive for coronavirus.

And there have been a recorded 46,717 COVID-19 related dates so far.

Lockdown shall begin from Thursday 5 November.

Only essential shops shall remain open.

However, click and collect shall still be allowed.

And schools and universities will stay open throughout the United Kingdom.
