PremierLeague-News.Com - Good Morning Britain saw Adil Ray and Susanna Reid discussing the new rules on hugging this morning
PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! Dr Hilary Jones gave instructions on the best way to hug on Good Morning Britain as covid restrictions ease today (May 17). Today marks Step 3 of the Government roadmap out of lockdown - and hugging is now legal under revised rules. Co-presenter Adil Ray said: "If you're a hugger, today is a big day," he said. "40 per cent of people say they still feel uncomfortable hugging according to a new survey." But the TV doctor had some tips on how to do it safely. Dr Hilary said: "I would still wear a mask, turn your head around and not talk to them whilst your hugging them because it's aerosol contact that is transmitting the virus." The GP then goes on to demonstrate the best way to hug in a clip that shows him clinching his "glamorous assistant". He then laughedas Adil Ray joked about that being the way he hugged his partner; "that's enough of that darling" he joked. "Absolutely," Dr Hilary agreed as Susanna chimed in, "separate rooms." It was revealed by Susanna Reid that Dr Hilary was in fact hugging his wife in the clip. She said: "Just like to point out something Dr Hilary that you weren't allowed to hug anyone else when we filmed that so we did do that filming with you and your wife. Normally it might be a little closer." "It would be," he agreed. Adil then clarified: "So what you're saying is, let me get this right, if you're going to hug somebody you can hug them but keep your mouth and your face pointing away from them." Dr Hilary confirmed: "Absolutely, because it's inhaling aerosol droplets from someone that's transmitting the virus that is almost a guarantee to transmit the virus to yourself. "So if it's someone that you haven't seen in a while and you don't know how they've been behaving, whether they've been socially responsible.

..." Susanna said as she physically recoiled backwards. "I'm still in the mood for a virtual hug."
There are mixed reviews on lifting hugging rules on Twitter. One person said: "I will only hug outside my family the day I get a hug from Susanna. "I think it’s mad if we think we have beaten this virus. As a bus driver I see so many people every day not socially distancing, that take their masks off once on the bus. "People need to take responsibility." However, another replied: "Sorry, am I missing something? Since when are we told when we can and can’t hug. I haven’t stopped hugging." "Susanna is 100 per cent right, No hugs unless both people are happy with the situation," said a third. A fourth added: "So the TV GP wants us to do a dynamic risk assessment first before getting kitted out in PPE before we hug someone! What a waste of space this man is." A fifth wrote: "I'm Welsh, we're huggers by nature but I've gone from being hugged by strangers at bus stops to over 12 months of solo lockdown where I've developed a strong 'stay back' glare. "Fair to say it'll take a little while to get back in the hug game, pretty excited about indoor dining though."
