Piers Morgan said that he was experiencing a “mild” COVID-like symptom. However, he posted to Twitter that his test was negative. 

Just two days after revealing that he will temporarily be stepping back from his duties on ITV’s morning show, ‘Good Morning Britain’, host Piers Morgan has revealed that he tested negative for COVID-19.

Piers Morgan said that he was experiencing a “mild” COVID-like symptom. However, he posted to Twitter that his test was negative. 

He said he took the test on the advice of his doctor and would “be back on @GMB as soon as my doctor advises I’m OK to return to work.”

Piers Morgan added that he was entitled to take a test because he is considered “a Govt-designated essential worker.”

He tweeted: “UPDATE: My COVID-19 test was negative. I was advised to take the test by my doctor after developing possible coronavirus symptoms, and was entitled to do so as a Govt-designated essential worker. I'll be back on @GMB as soon as my doctor advises I'm OK to return to work.”
