British MP Tests Positive to Coronavirus

Britain's health minister Nadine Dorries has become the first MP to be diagnosed with the new coronavirus.
The under-secretary of State for Health and Social Care said she has been self-isolating at home after testing positive and her parliamentary office has closed following advice from Public Health England.
In a statement last night, Ms Dorries said: "As soon as I was informed I took all the advised precautions and have been self-isolating at home.
"Public Health England (PHE) has started detailed contact tracing and the department and my parliamentary office are closely following their advice.
"I would like to thank PHE and the wonderful NHS staff who have provided me with advice and support."
The number of cases in the UK has risen to 382, and six people have died due to coronavirus.
The UK's Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC) said Ms Dorries first exhibited symptoms at some time last Thursday - the same day she attended a Downing Street event hosted by Prime Minister Boris Johnson to mark International Women's Day.
