The host hit out at the Prime Minister’s hopes for Christmas Day to go ahead claiming the public should expect not to celebrate the day. Piers Morgan warned viewers to expect to have Christmas cancelled in order to stop the spread of coronavirus as the number of cases of coronavirus continues to increase.

Addressing the nation this morning, Piers fumed: ““This virus has not got any less virulent, it doesn’t understand rule of six or Boris’ idea of having Christmas Day off as if somehow we can all amass on Christmas Day and then go back to the rules.

“As if the virus is going, ‘Oh okay, I’ll leave you alone on Christmas Day.’

“If we miss Christmas Day as a country, if that’s what we have to do, we have to do it. This is our war.

“People have to be realistic about that. Hilary lets bring you in here because you’re the master of all this stuff.

“Where are we? With your expert head on, where are we now?

“It’s been described in the papers today, leaks from the Chief Medical Officer and the Chief Scientific Advisor as an absolutely pivotal moment in the pandemic in this country.”

Dr Hilary replied: “Well we know that the R rate is about 1.4 which means 10 people are giving this virus to 14 others.

“If that continues the rate will increase exponentially and we will be back to where we were pre-lockdown before March.”
