Coronavirus frontline: the paramedics risking their lives to help patients – BBC News

Tributes have been paid to two members of the Yorkshire Ambulance Service, who’ve died after contracting coronavirus.

Reeta Chakrabarti presents BBC News at Ten reports from Emma Vardy, on the frontline with paramedics in Northern Ireland, and Science Editor David Shukman.
