Federal treasurer Josh Frydenberg has been tested for coronavirus after breaking down with a coughing fit during parliament on Tuesday.
Frydenberg was midway through a speech when he had a nasty coughing fit in the House of Representatives, confirming later on that he has been tested as a precaution.
"After question time I sought the advice of the Deputy Chief Medical officer [who] advised me that...it was prudent I get tested for COVID-19," he said.
The audio was played on Kennedy Molloy, where Mick Molloy was quick to make a diagnosis.
"I think he's got the 'rona," Mick said.
"Do not go within 1.5 metres of the federal treasurer if you know what's good for you."
