There have been warnings that a second wave could happen as lockdown restrictions continue to be eased.
During Thursday’s Good Morning Britain, Dr Hilary said he thinks if there’s going to be a second wave it will be “less significant”.
What did Dr Hilary say?
He said: “If we do see one I think it will be a less significant than the first, however, let’s hope we don’t have one at all.”
Host Lorraine Kelly asked: “If that was going to happen when would that show itself do you think?”
Dr Hilary replied: “In the next two weeks.”
Lockdown restrictions are continuing to ease across the country with some children returning to school.
Meanwhile, some shops are expected to begin reopening from June 15.
If we do see one I think it will be a less significant than the first.
Prime Minister Boris Johnson recently announced the introduction of new support bubbles.
He said: “There are too many people, particularly those who live by themselves, who are lonely and struggling with being unable to see friends and family.
“From this weekend, we will allow single adult households, living alone, or single parents with children under 18, to form a support bubble with one other household.”
Earlier today (June 11), Dr Hilary cleared up confusion regarding grandparents seeing their grandchildren to Lorraine viewers.
He said: “Grandparents who are living together, they can’t as there’s two of them.
“But if there’s one of them, they can go and visit their grandchildren. But if they have other grandchildren elsewhere, they can only choose one.”
Meanwhile, he added: “Couples who’ve been living apart can go and have sex in their support bubbles.”
'I'm sure Neil Ferguson is right that had we put lockdown in place earlier we would have saved lives.' @DrHilaryJones explains that some scientists warned at the start of the pandemic that we should have locked down earlier and it probably would have saved lives. #AskDrH pic.twitter.com/FwwlblkD7z
