Members of the public are being given an opportunity to ask questions at the next government coronavirus conference. 

Daily press meetings have been held since the start of the outbreak - with cabinet ministers and health experts communicating the latest news about COVID-19 cases before answering questions from journalists via video link.

However, the government have now invited the public to ask questions - with one being chosen to feature on the live broadcast.

Queries can be submitted online. If you're chosen, you'll be contacted by 3pm on the day of the conference and asked to record a short video of yourself reciting the question. If you don't wish to record a video, the inquiry will be read aloud at the conference instead.

Questions are chosen by an independent polling organisation and the government have no involvement the selection process.
