WHO spokesperson interrupted by bizarre noise of dog barking on Sky news

A World Health Organisation spokeswoman was interrupted by the bizarre noise of her dog barking during her live Sky News appearance today.

Dr Margaret Harris, from the UK, was speaking about Covid-19 and the likeliness of there being a second wave when the rather unusual and loud noise took both her, and presenter Niall Paterson, by surprise.   

Speaking about the pandemic, the WHO representative began: ‘It’s not operating the way a traditional respiratory virus operates.

‘As you say, generally with many respiratory viruses you would expect to see the peaks during the winter because it relies on us being in cramped conditions for transmission.’

She continued: ‘This virus seems to manage very nicely in the hottest of places, it’s raging in Brazil and Australia is in their second outbreak.’

However, while she continued to offer her expert opinion on the topic, a rather loud noise which sounded more like an elephant trumpeting than a dog bark, could be heard – with no pet visible on camera.  

Seconds later, Dr Harris could be seen leaning over presumably in an attempt to calm her pet down and stop him from stealing the show.   

Instead of ignoring the amusing blunder, presenter Niall was left in hysterics and joked: ‘I sincerely hope that was your dog getting involved in the interview there.’

‘So sorry, sounds like we might have to let you go, so we will.’  

Confirming his suspicions, a smiling Dr Harris enthused: ‘Thank you, my dog says bye.’ 

It comes just weeks after an expert’s live TV interview was interrupted by her toddler looking for advice on where to place a painting has revealed they settled the dilemma. 

Dr Clare Wenham, from South London, appeared on BBC News in July to discuss the coronavirus crisis when her daughter Scarlett began rearranging a unicorn picture behind her – and even struck up a conversation with the newsreader.

After Dr Wenham apologised, Scarlett remained in the room and began rearranging a shelf behind her, trying to figure out where to put her painting.

Following the blunder, Dr Wehham tweeted that they decided on a spot for the artwork, and thanked people for their ‘kind words normalising the work-parent balance that so many are juggling amid Covid-19 chaos’.
