The coronavirus lockdowns have been enough to make anyone sick in the guts and that appeared to come true on a recent report on Britain’s new news channel GB News.
GB News reporter Anna Riley had stopped a man on the street in Hull in England’s east to garner his views on the government’s attempts to move ‘Freedom Day’ – the day the UK was supposed to come out of its COVID restrictions – due to a new outbreak.
But whatever the theatre worker thought of the move was quickly overshadowed to what was happening in the background – the sound of someone repeatedly vomiting!
