Health Secretary Matt Hancock has confirmed on a video he shared on Twitter this afternoon that he has tested positive for coronavirus. This comes shortly after Prime Minister Boris Johnson also tests positive.
Both Hancock & Johnson are now in self isolation.
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.
