Naga began: “Let’s get a medical view on the latest development on the coronavirus story from one of our regular GPS Dr Nighat Arif.”
The GP appeared on screen and waved at the BBC Breakfast host.
“Hello good morning,” Naga remarked. “Lovely of you to wave.”

“Oh look!” Naga exclaimed. “Where did you get the mug from? Did you steal it?”
“No I didn’t steal it. I got Dan to post it out to me,” Nighat replied. “I’m officially part of the family now.”
“They’re very rare,” Naga remarked. “Good morning to you.”
“I’m showing it off,” the GP commented before answering Naga’s questions on the latest Covid developments.
