Apple has launched a new series called Oprah Talks COVID-19, which covers the coronavirus pandemic with expert discussion and those impacted by the illness.

The show description in the Apple TV app states ‘How can we mindfully move through a crisis while holding on to ourselves and our humanity?

‘In this series, Oprah has remote conversations with experts and everyday people to provide insight, meaning and tangible advice for the human spirit.’

The first episode sees host Oprah Winfrey speaking with Idris Elba and his partner Sabrina Dhowre.

Oprah said: ‘I know a lot of people are feeling stressed, overwhelmed and uncertain. Because of that, I want to offer some hope and gather thought leaders and people going through it to add some perspective.’
