Pacific Islanders urged to join BBC's coronavirus challenge

BBC Radio 1 have launched a search to find one person from every country in the world to tell coronavirus to go away.

Led by Radio 1 Breakfast host Greg James, the station will attempt to find one person from every country on earth to send a big ‘up yours’ to Coronavirus using a phrase with a similar meaning in their own country. Though such a mammoth task may prove impossible, all Radio 1 shows across the week will be supporting Greg and calling on listeners around the world for help tracking people down to take part.

Among the 193 people from 193 countries they are hoping to track down, the station hope to get in touch with people across the Pacific Islands in time for the end of the breakfast show (10:00 BST) on Wednesday, July 29 . Listeners can apply to get involved via bbc.co
