Speaking to BBC Breakfast from his home in Cornwall 94-year-old Harry Billinge said of his self-isolation: "I don't mind, my mind is free, I can be anywhere."
Of coronavirus he said: "Well it's evil. It's a very good thing to draw people together and realise that we don't live just for ourselves but for other people.
"Marvellous really that people have rallied round. It's like the war years."
