11 March 2020, Kathmandu

British Health Minister and Conservative MP Nadine Dorries has been diagnosed with coronavirus, BBC reported.

Dorries, the first MP to test positive for the novel virus, said she had taken all the advised precautions after finding out and has been self-isolating at home.

Dorries is taken ill after the sixth person died of the virus in the UK, taking the virus cases to 382.

The latest person to die was a man in his early 80s.

Meanwhile, Manchester City’s Premier League match against Arsenal on Wednesday has been postponed as “a precautionary measure” owning to the outbreak.

The government will unveil its first Budget later, amid growing fears about the impact the outbreak will have on the UK economy.
