Piers Morgan publicly clashes with son Spencer over coronavirus guidelines

The father and son have butt heads on social media


Piers Morgan has publicly clashed with his son Spencer over coronavirus guidelines.

The UK is currently experiencing a spike in Covid-19 cases, which has led to increased restrictions across the country.

On Tuesday, Piers’ 27-year-old son tweeted: “Increased testing really has exposed the lie of a Covid hasn’t it.” [sic]

“Can’t believe it’s actually turned out to be not much more deadly than flu, just way more contagious.”

In another tweet, he said: “We either lockdown forever or get on with life. There is no in between at this stage. Any other measures just delay the inevitable.”

Piers then reposted his son’s second tweet, and wrote: “No. There absolutely is an in-between option: suppress the virus as best we can until there’s a vaccine or drugs that stop people dying.”

“But to do that we need a testing system that works…. and a population prepared to tolerate sensible not absurd lifestyle restrictions.”

Spencer disagreed with his father, and replied: “Na. We just need the vulnerable 1% to shield properly and give them financial/emotional support until better medication/vaccine.”

Later, Piers slammed US President Donald Trump for comparing the coronavirus to the flu.

Sharing a graph showing how many people have died from Covid-19 compared to the flu, Piers tweeted: “More people have already died from Covid-19 in America this year than have died from flu there in the last 5yrs COMBINED. And that’s with available flu shoots. Coronavirus is not the bloody flu.”

Spencer then disagreed with his father again by reposting his tweet, and writing: “But how many people have had it than have had flu?”
