Nick Robinson, 56, has opened up about self-isolating after sparking coronavirus concerns on return from a holiday trip to Vietnam and Cambodia. The BBC Radio 4 presenter revealed he has been banned from throwing away any rubbish and was tested for the virus in a hospital car park.
Speaking out about the situation to the Mirror, Nick recalled a nurse “protected by a plastic face shield” conducted the tests “through the car window”.
He explained: “‘You'll know the results within 48 hours’, I was told.
“The results will reveal whether I have coronavirus or, more precisely, COVID-19.
“I hope and believe I haven't got the dreaded virus. So do my doctors.”

Nick went on to address the instructions that had been given to him in a leaflet.
He said: “I read the leaflet I'd been given. Do not go to work, public areas or use public transport, it informs me.
“So far so predictable. Don't use the same towels as your family or same bathroom (if you're lucky enough to have two). Don't use the same bedroom as anyone else.
“Do not throw out any rubbish. On and on it goes.”
