Mr Hancock tweeted: ‘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. Vital we follow the advice to protect our NHS & save lives.’

His announcement came just a matter of hours after Boris Johnson confirmed that he had tested positive for Covid-19 and was self-isolating at Downing Street. Mr Hancock said in a video message that he would be self-isolating until next Thursday.

‘Fortunately for me the symptoms so far have been very mild so I’ve been able to carry on with the work driving forward the UK response.’ He also said a ‘massive thank you to everybody in the NHS, working in social care and right across the board on the response’.
