Coronavirus: Josh Frydenberg's coughing fit in parliament
Australia's Federal Treasurer, Josh Frydenberg, was hit with a coughing fit while trying to give an update on the economy in parliament in Canberra. The coughing, which began 15 minutes into a 30 minute speech, caused the politician to temporarily lose his voice.
A joke about the speech being too long prompted laughs from the Prime Minister, Scott Morrison, who was sitting next to the treasurer.
Josh Frydenberg was tested for Covid-19 but said the result came back negative.
