Boris Johnson's personal coronavirus battle – podcast


When Boris Johnson began his period of isolation in Downing Street he released a video saying his symptoms were mild and he was getting on with the job of leading the government’s response to the coronavirus crisis.

Late on Sunday, he was admitted to hospital and the following night taken into intensive care. It was an announcement that shocked a nation already reeling from the speed of recent events.

Guardian columnist Jonathan Freedland joins Anushka Asthana to discuss how the prime minister’s illness leaves a gap at the top of government amid a major crisis. Health editor Sarah Boseley describes how the disease progresses.
