Given that the virus and variants are still out there, what is it not safe to do after you’re vaccinated?

Famous Dr. Hilary Jones on the Good Morning Britain show has warned that hugging could pose a risk ahead of social distancing measures.

When asked by Susanna Reid what the risk of hugging is, Dr Hilary said:

If you’re in hugging range and you’re touching somebody and your face is right next to theirs, you’re going to be breathing the breath that they’re exhaling.

The virus is transmitted through aerosol droplets so the risk is much higher.

He then proceeded to echo professor Catherine Noakes of the Scientific Advisory Group for Emergencies (SAGE) and said that hugs should be selective and short.

It could be more dangerous than keeping at a distance and being sensible

Dr Hilary continued.

Although the doctor agreed that hugging has health benefits as Hugs help to release ‘happy hormones’ which make you feel more relaxed and diminishes anxiety and depression, he implored people to remain cautious.

This showing of human affection through touch, through a hug, is very beneficial in most circumstances, but right now, it might be a mistake because we’ve got these new variants

the doctor concluded.
