Channel 4 News host Jon Snow in isolation over coronavirus fears after travelling abroad – The Sun

CHANNEL 4 News host Jon Snow is in isolation amid fears he may have been in contact with coronavirus.

The news anchor announced he will remain in self-isolation for two weeks after travelling to Iran to cover the country's election.

The presenter is following Department for Health guidelines, according to Channel 4 News.

Snow said that he does not have any symptoms of the virus.

He told Channel 4 News via a videolink from his home: "I woke up this morning feeling rather tired, but that was from the trip.

"But we weren't actually anywhere near where the main virus outbreak has occurred."

He said that he is "not really supposed to congregate with any crowds or go anywhere where there may be people", adding: "So that means I'm sitting at home.

"To be honest, the absolute enormity of the prospect of 14 days hasn't really hit me."

He added: "Maybe if you call me again in 14 days you will have a headcase on your hands."

Snow's producer and cameraman are also self-isolating after the trip to Iran.

"None of the team are currently showing any symptoms of Covid-19 but the official advice is to self-isolate regardless," Channel 4 News tweeted.

The head of Iran's virus task force, who just a day earlier gave a news conference in Tehran in which he tried to minimise the danger posed by the outbreak, tested positive for the illness on Tuesday.

His diagnosis came amid a worsening outbreak of coronavirus in the country.
