Nick Ferrari explained how the UK is trying to stop the spread of coronavirus compared with the rest of the world - and listeners said it was traffic-stopping.

Nine people have tested positive for coronavirus in the UK so far, but still there are 100 flights a day to Britain from China.

Admitting his shock, Nick said: "I didn't realise it was this bad. We're the only country in the world effectively [not doing enough].

"You get banned in all these countries... and we give them a piece of paper.

"In the time it's taken you to read this article, one flight has probably touched down from China. There are 100 flights a day to China. What are we doing?"
