27 March 2020, London

British health minister Matt Hancock said on Twitter on Friday he has tested positive for coronavirus and is self-isolating at home with mild symptoms.

Less than two hours earlier, Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced that he too had tested positive for the virus, Reuters reported.

In a video posted on Twitter, the health secretary said he had tested positive for coronavirus after developing mild symptoms.

He said he had been working from home for the past few days and would now be self-isolating.

‘I just want to say a massive thank you to everybody in the NHS,’ he said.
