UK Health Secretary Matt Hancock tests positive for Coronavirus following Boris Johnson
The Health Secretary Matt Hancock has tested positive for Coronavirus.
He said he was tested after he developed symptoms on Wednesday night and he is working from home.
Mr Hancock tweeted: "Following medical advice, I was advised to test for Coronavirus. I've tested positive. "Thankfully my symptoms are mild and I'm working from home & self-isolating. Vital we follow the advice to protect our NHS & save lives." It comes after it was revealed that Prime Minister Boris Johnson has tested positive for coronavirus and is self-isolating in Downing St.
Mr Johnson revealed the news in a tweet after developing symptoms in the last 24 hours but insisted he would continue to lead the government through the crisis.
It raises fears that other key Downing St staff may have been exposed - and prominent members of the Cabinet the Chancellor.
Anyone showing signs of coronavirus, which include a temperature and a persistent dry cough, have been instructed to self-isolate for seven days, and everyone living in their household should do the same for a two-week period.
