Good Morning Britain viewers were distraught earlier this year when host Piers Morgan announced he had come down with supposed symptoms of COVID-19 on Twitter. While the ITV presenter was taken off the show briefly, he was eventually tested and cleared of any coronavirus fears. This morning’s edition of the show saw him discussing this with his co-host Susanna Reid and health expert Dr Hilary Jones.
The discussion surrounded hayfever, and whether the anecdotally rising cases may have inadvertently had something to do with coronavirus.
He explained when he came down with symptoms he was “getting breathless and developed a cough”.
During the chat, Piers let out a little cough as he continued to make his point.
Meanwhile, Dr Hilary explained that, perhaps, hayfever was on the rise because of the dropping levels of pollution.
