Doc records excruciating experience of drive-through coronavirus test


A doctor has recorded the excruciating experience of a drive-through coronavirus test.

The video, filmed on April 15 in Oxford, shows Dr Rufus Cartwright retching as his nose and throat are swabbed in his first test for the virus, despite working on the front line of an NHS hospital.

The procedure causes him to wince and cough repeatedly on the tester showing how crucial PPE is to carrying out his work safely.

"I'm a doctor but I was really surprised how painful this was," Dr Cartwright said.
