For those of you who haven’t been in radio studios, this obviously raises concerns about Newstalk’s entire staff. Almost every programme is broadcast from the same studio, using the same microphone. If there’s one place you’re likely to find coronavirus now, it’s on a microphone that Ciara Kelly has used.

Newstalk and Today FM are in the same building. So if Kelly’s been walking around for the past few days with a cough, then Matt Cooper is at risk as well.
