Today’s EADT Daily podcast discusses the historic moment the Queen addressed the nation, the Prime Minister Boris Johnson being hospitalised with Covid-19 and whether outdoor exercise should be banned.

Editor of the EADT and Ipswich Star Brad Jones is joined by senior digital reporter Sophie Barnett and local government correspondent Jason Noble to discuss the latest coronavirus news in Suffolk as we enter the third week of lockdown.

They reflect on the Queen’s words “we will meet again”, with editor Brad Jones saying this positive message gives us hope and urges us to carry on.

Jason Noble also explains how the coronavirus crisis “does not discriminate”, as shown by Boris Johnson’s situation, and how Suffolk’s councils could be impacted in the long-run as a result of the pandemic.
