As per report to a research 60% of Britons could be affected by the coronavirus, formally known as COVID-19.

Professor Ferguson warned that 1% of people who get infected might die.

As reported by the Daily Mail, government is working on the assumption that half of the population will be infected with the virus, which could reach every part of Britain within months.

Globally more than 1500 died of coronavirus while over 66,000 are infected from it.
