Is coronavirus inside the Iranian prison where Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe is being held?

Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe is being held inside an Iranian jail where campaigners claim people are dying from coronavirus. Tehran denies there is an outbreak among inmates at Evin, but the British government says they’re not taking that as “authoritative,” and Nazanin’s family say they’re extremely worried. Her husband, Richard Ratcliffe, speaks to the Leader podcast about his calls for Downing Street to intervene before it’s too late. He reveals how the jail has run out of cleaning products, and that authorities are refusing to test Nazanin for the virus even though she has the symptoms of a cold. He also talks about how their 5-year-old daughter Gabriella is settling into life in the UK without her mother.
