It’s the question everyone is asking: what’s it actually like to catch the virus. Presented by Dr Saleyha Ahsan, who herself has Covid-19, we give cameras to six families and individuals from different backgrounds who film themselves battling the coronavirus. Scientists and experts help explain their symptoms and how the disease progresses and why some people are affected so much more seriously than others. As well as exploring these people’s physical symptoms, the documentary also charts their emotional struggles as they fight the virus alone at home, often fearful, knowing that as yet there is no cure.
