UK Health Secretary confirms he has coronavirus


British Health Secretary Matt Hancock said Friday that he is infected with the coronavirus.

Hancock’s announcement came within an hour of Prime Minister Boris Johnson revealing he had the coronavirus.

In a video message shared on Twitter, Hancock said: “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.”

Hancock said he would be isolating until next Thursday and had been working from home in recent days.
