Professor Kevin Fenton, London regional director of Public Health England, said people doubting the seriousness of the pandemic and the situation in the NHS need to read and listen to the words of NHS staff and Covid-19 patients.
He told BBC Breakfast: “I would encourage people to read, look at the programmes that you’re running on TV where you’re interviewing doctors, where you’re interviewing patients who’ve had this very severe disease and are suffering from the long-term effects of it.
“This is the reality and that is the truth. So the advice would be listen, read, but stay at home. Protect yourself, protect your families.”
