RD&E doctor recovering from covid

VIDEO: Five medics from one shift contracted virus

A doctor at the Royal Devon and Exeter Hospital says it's "horrible" suffering from covd-19. 

Five medics working on one shift have tested positive for the virus. 

Dr David Strain, still breathless and with a dry cough, says he wouldn't like the area to come out of lockdown early. He wants to think about specific bubbles that are strictly adhered to, rather than the former 'rule of six' - which means each person can mix with six others; 36 individual interactions, possibly with households. If everyone did that just once, and a massive rise of person-to-person contact subsequently.

Dr Strain is now recovering from covid, as he explains in this report from BBC Spotlight.
