United Kingdom’s health minister, Nadine Dorries has confirmed she has contracted the deadly COVID-19 virus (Coronavirus).
BBC reports the 62-year-old Conservative politician is the first member of the parliament to test positive to the virus.
Confirming in a statement on Tuesday, the British MP said;
“I can confirm I have tested positive for coronavirus… and have been self-isolating at home.”
She fell unwell on Friday while signing the document that declared coronavirus a notifiable disease, meaning companies could obtain insurance cover, said the paper, adding she was now believed to be on the road to recovery.
“I would like to thank… the wonderful NHS staff who have provided me with advice and support,” she said, referring to Britain’s National Health Service.
However, there are speculations she met Prime Minister, Boris Johnson before she was tested positive of the virus.
