Cabinet minister self-isolates after coronavirus test

Health minister Edward Argar, a colleague of Ms Dorries, has also self-isolated on the advice of officials.

It comes after the UK saw its biggest daily rise yet on Wednesday – up to 460 cases with eight deaths.

Self-isolating is the advice currently being given to people who have recently returned from affected countries or have been in close contact with a person who has tested positive for the virus.

It means staying at home, not going to work, school or other public places, and avoiding public transport or taxis, in an attempt to avoid spreading the virus.
