Speaking to the camera as he cooked a meal for a cook, he said, “Many of you may have realized that during this time I live alone, from doctor and house to house and stay away from everyone because I don’t want to give Amelia a disease. ‘
He continued, “In the NHS or any other health care system around the world, I know many of us, like me, isolate alone, and I know it can’t be ideal and even lonely.
“But we’re in it together, and I just wanted to say to someone who thinks like that, you’re not alone.”

Days ago, Amelia publicly praised her boyfriend for the work he did during the pandemic.
In addition to a photo of their two shadows, she wrote, “This afternoon I painted a mirror in the sun while drinking wine and listening to the Beach Boys. Meanwhile, Alex ran around Lewisham hospital to treat Covid-19 patients.
“I am so proud of him and I am endlessly grateful for all the NHS staff and key staff who work tirelessly in such uncertain times.”
It comes days after Alex urged the NHS to provide free parking to all staff during the global coronavirus pandemic.

Meal for one: “Many of you may have realized that during this period I live alone, go home from A&E and stay away from everyone because I don’t want to give Amelia any disease.”
With more than 20,000 additional workers called up to help fight COVID-19, Alex has called for ‘hospital car parks to be free’ because an employee’s vehicle was clamped after being forced to park at their local recreation center.
The media personality, who returned to his career as an A&E doctor in November 2018, wrote on Twitter on Sunday evening: ‘Controversial, but perhaps this is a good time for hospital car parks to be free for NHS employees? Retweet if you agree. ‘
Alex admitted that he had been left emotionally when he received a message agreeing with his statement, “Must be free. Bournemouth hospital staff, parked at the local recreation center, which is CLOSED, came out and noticed they were trapped !! ‘ [sic]
Earlier in the day, he thanked McDonald’s for announcing the shutdown until further notice from Monday.
In addition to the company’s statement, the TV star shared: ‘I know this will disappoint many, but the right decision was made [clapping hands sign]. ‘
