It comes after the death toll fell below 100 for the first time since the lockdown began in March.
Data released on Sunday, June 7, showed that the number of deaths from coronavirus fell to 77.
In response to the number of double digits, Dr. Hilary provided an update on the likelihood of someone contracting coronavirus at this time.
“The prospect is that the chances of someone in the UK picking up coronavirus right now is one in 1,000,” he told viewers.
“What we do know is that the age groups most affected are much older – 70s, 80s, 90s. They are the ones we see the consequences of coronavirus in particular.
“Of course, there are rare cases among young people.”
He then discussed the likelihood that children contracting the virus now schools have reopened.
He said: “It is not a childhood disease at all. The number of children affected is so small worldwide, and not just in this country.
