UK Health Minister Nadine Dorries Tests Positive For Coronavirus




Matt Hancock, the health secretary also tweeted:



“Really sorry to hear Nadine has tested positive for coronavirus. She has done the right thing by self isolating at home, and both NHS and PHE staff have been brilliant. We all wish her well as she recovers.”


62-year-old Dorries reportedly met hundreds of people in parliament over the past week and attended a reception with Boris Johnson at Number 10. All health ministers including Health Secretary Matt Hancock are reportedly set to undergo testing for the virus following Ms Dorries' diagnosis. 



This is coming after the sixth person died from the virus in the UK, which so far has a total of 382 cases. There are also speculation of parliament being suspended to limit the spread of coronavirus among MPs, peers and staff.
