During Sunday’s The Andrew Marr Show, the host openly admitted to viewers that he believed he caught Covid-19 during his visit to the G7 in Cornwall. The BBC presenter said despite having both vaccinations, the virus left him feeling extremely unwell. The G7 Summit took place in Cornwall between June 11 and June 13 and saw a special visit from America’s president Joe Biden. However, Marr said he began to show symptoms of the virus last week. According to the NHS website, if someone tests positive for the virus, they must self-isolate for 10 days. The self-isolation period begins from the day someone first shows symptoms.
Following the segment, baffled viewers took to Twitter to share their thoughts as many questioned how Marr could be hosting the programme if he had caught Covid last week.
One quizzed: “@BBCPolitics @AndrewMarr9 if you had covid one week ago as you stated on the BBC why are you not isolating? #COVID19 #AndrewMarr.” (sic)
Another penned: “Andrew Marr, I had ‘a bit of covid last week and very nasty it was too’, Ermm wtf!! #marr #andrewmarr #
A third added: “How is #andrewmarr back at work if he had #covid last week? Isn’t self-isolation required for fourteen days? Worrying he had been double-jabbed and thinks he got it at #G7. Does seem to be different rules for elites.”
A fourth simply asked: “Has he recovered from G7 COVID, then?”
“Sorry utterly laughable #andrewmarr double jabbed in the spring and caught Corona last week #bbcnews #followthescience,” a fifth commented.
A sixth viewer said: “#andrewmarr dropped a bombshell After being double jabbed be still caught #COVID19 and said he felt very ill!” (sic)
