    Piers Morgan, the presenter of Good Morning Britain – often notable for his reactionary, populist views – has to his credit recognised the seriousness of the novel coronavirus outbreak from the outset. You can hear how annoyed Piers is in this feature, too, at the selfish behaviours he perceives among his fellow Brits.

    3. Hi
      My daughter ( 4 years old ) has been unwell for almost 4 weeks. Cough, temperature during week 1 and struggling to breath. She still has the cough and is still working hard to breath ( has a tug ) My daughter is also an asthmatic who has been on lots of oral steroids , inhalers and has had over 20 hospital admissions. I’ve taken her to A & E 3 times and because her oxygen levels are ok they will not test her. Shes had 2 lots of antibiotics and 1 5 day course of steroids. My gut feeling is COVID 19 .. what do I do ?!

    5. Hi thanks for keeping us so well informed. could i ask doctor hiliary a question my daughter has just had her first granddaughter and my grandsons first child, he is living with his inlaws they have seen the baby as they are all in one home, he is upset because his mum has not seen the baby , but my daughter does not want to put the baby or the family at risk, they think as they have hand sanitiser and temperature gauges it will be okay to visit what do you think as this is causing a bit of a stress on everyone.

Airport workers those working on Security checking out going passengers have rubber glove but no face masks very close contact what risk is there with such close contact as can not be 2 m away had their hours cut and 20% pay cut not good for them part and full time workers still have to work as classed important but more at risk than anyone should the company be giving out face masks.

    8. I’m sick and can’t get paracetamol on eBay they are selling it for £20 – £249 a packet people are profiting out out other s misery

    9. I work at a local Chinese doing delivery, answering the phone ect. Its a very small place but with lots of staff. So social distancing is impossible. This is a big worry to me and havnt heard much information about these types of jobs. I am self employed so get no help and am a single parent I feel I’m in an impossible position, any information or guidance would be greatly appriciated

    10. 85 year old dad has limited mobility. I can do his shopping but if I left it on the doorstep he wouldn’t be able to lift it am I able to take it into the kitchen for him then leave as long as I wipe the door handle as I leave and he stays in another dad is worried that I will be breaking rules if I take it into his bungalow. Many thanks

    11. Hi Dr.H,
      My daughter in law has just had a caesarean section and will be needing bringing home from hospital with my newborn grandson, my son will be going to collect them both but will need me to sit with their other children whilst he collects them both, as I am the only person I can ask ( and I have the baby seat at my home) will I be okay to do this as I can’t see any other way, I will also need to take a taxi to their home as I don’t have a car. thanks for the advice.

    12. Hi My daughter is trying to work with toddlers who I used to care for . I have suggested I do washing and ironing leaving it on the doorstep is this ok?

    13. Hi Please ask Doc H.. would an oxygenated and pressurized environment help someone suffering from the coronavirus? As this is all that certain types of ventilators do. We could very easily do this on a very large scale by simple modifications to some aircraft. an aircraft cabin is a pressurized tube we would need to fit some sort of an airlock and add a method of oxygenating the air but I am sure this could all be done very quickly.

    14. can Dr Hilary talk about laryngectomees and the corona virus, are they more at risk ?, should they be going to work ? i believe they are more difficult to intubate is this a problem if they go to hospital? a lot of hospital doctors and nurses do not know how to deal with these patients.
