Retired UK doctor becomes YouTube sensation for coronavirus advice

A retired doctor in the UK has become an overnight YouTube star for his calm, informational videos on preventing the spread of coronavirus.

Dr. John Campbell has 439,000 subscribers to his channel and views for his videos — daily updates on the pandemic as well as how-to’s, including one on hand-washing — have topped 30 million views.
