Ireland’s Prime Minister Leo Varadkar will return to his medicinal roots to help his country fight the coronavirus.
Varadkar, who worked in medicine for seven years before entering politics, has reregistered as a doctor and will work one shift a week with Ireland’s Health Service Executive.
The 40-year-old will reportedly help assess patients who have been exposed to the coronavirus over the phone.
