An Australian lawmaker has been tested for Covid-19 after a coughing fit in parliament on Tuesday made it difficult for him to finish his speech.

Video footage shows Australian Treasurer Josh Frydenberg having to pause several times to get his breath back, taking sips of water in a bid to reclaim his voice. “I’m lucky I have some water,” he said, coughing.

“Too long of a speech.”

Frydenberg later revealed that he had entered self-isolation and was tested for coronavirus, according to CNN affiliate 9News.
