Love Island’s Dr Alex George has revealed that his colleagues have passed away from coronavirus as they help battle the virus on the frontline.
The A&E doctor admitted that it’s ‘frightening’ knowing that more staff will lose their lives in the fight against Covid-19 and has called out those who continue to flout government guidelines to stay at home.
Alex joined Good Morning Britain’s Piers Morgan and Susanna Reid on today’s programme where he began by confessing his worry about catching the deadly virus himself.
‘I think anyone who’s not concerned about catching coronavirus is not being completely open,’ he began. ‘Of course we’re concerned.
‘Some of my colleagues have passed away… just because you’re young, it isn’t guaranteed that you’re going to have the mild illness.
‘We’re going to lose more colleagues which is frightening. We know we’ve got a job to do… and were doing our best.’
Alex continued: ‘It is absolutely heartbreaking seeing people not following the guidance.
‘I drove past Clapham Common the other day to work and I saw people lying out and sunbathing.. if they knew the risks, they wouldn’t do it.’
So far, coronavirus has claimed the lives of 4,934 people in the UK, with a total of 47,806 people having tested positive for Covid-19.
The latest figures emerged as the Health Secretary warned all outdoor exercise could be completely banned if people continue to flout social distancing rules.
Good Morning Britain airs weekdays from 6am on ITV.
