Chemotherapy and immunotherapy treatments are being suspended as are ongoing checkups .
The theory is because the above treatments weaken your immune system you are more susceptible to viruses , that's some position to be in if you need treatment to have a better chance of survival .
Add to that thousands who are not getting early diagnosis with both doctors and hospitals because they can't get appointments or are avoiding hospitals .
Similar to those with heart problems or other serious illness .
The knock on effect will be terrible .
