Caprice Bourett predicted coronavirus despite being shut down in unearthed clip

It seems as though Caprice Bourret saw the coronavirus coming before the world even knew the extent of it.

The former Dancing On Ice star, 49, correctly predicted what should be done to tackle Covid-19 in a video that resurfaced from last year.

Appearing on Channel 5’s Jeremy Vine Show show last year, the clip shows Caprice discuss the pandemic with Dr Sarah Jarvis, a GP and clinical director of the health information service Patient.

In the video, Dr Jarvis claimed that enforcing a nationwide lockdown would be “complete and utter nonsense” when it comes to combating the spread of the virus.

As host Jeremy watched on from the sidelines, Dr Jarvis snapped: “No disrespect, unless you have read every scientific paper and statistical modelling paper that’s come out, you cannot argue with me on that. You can have an opinion but it’s not a fact.”

“Let us make no mistake about this, we are not going to solve this,” Dr Jarvis added.

Interrupting her, Caprice argued: “But I can, I have an opinion.”

It was then when Caprice glanced down at a newspaper on her desk, then said: “This is what I’ve read – let me tell you the facts.

In Taiwan and Singapore, what they did they early on – in week one, in February, everyone was wearing surgical masks-”

Dr Jarvis then interrupts, adding: “That makes no difference at all.”

This turned out to not be the case, as governments all across the globe have enforced mask wearing on public transport and inside buildings.

Caprice tried to continue with her train of thought, however Jeremy Vine adds: “Sarah is the expert, but go on.”

She then grabbed a newspaper which quoted a spokesperson from the World Health Organisation.

“I think that is an authority,” she says to host Jeremy, who still refused to give her credit.
