BBC's George Alagiah on living with coronavirus and cancer

by | Apr 1, 2020 | Personal Stories - Blogs

In these worrying times we live in, this is a positive story for all cancer patients.
BBC newsreader George Alagiah, who is being treated for bowel cancer, has revealed he’s had a mild case of coronavirus.
As a cancer patient, he underwent tests after developing a fever – and a few days later his oncologist rang to say he had tested positive for the virus.
The News at Six on BBC One presenter was first diagnosed with cancer in 2014 but revealed in 2017 that the disease had returned.
“In some ways, I think that those of us living with cancer are stronger because we kind of know what it is like to go into something where the outcomes are uncertain,” he told colleague Sophie Raworth.
