“Public Health England has started detailed contact tracing and the department and my parliamentary office are closely following their advice,” Dorries told the BBC.

“Thanks for so many good wishes. It’s been pretty rubbish but I hope I’m over the worst of it now. More worried about my 84yo mum who is staying with me and began with the cough today. She is being tested tomorrow. Keep safe and keep washing those hands, everyone.”

The UK has confirmed more than 380 coronavirus infections and six people have died as of Tuesday, and expect the virus could “spread in a significant way.”
