The health Minister is the first Member of Parliament to be diagnosed with coronavirus, prompting concerns about the potential spread of the illness at Westminster and even at Downing Street where she attended a reception last week.
The Minister has been self-isolating at home since receiving the diagnosis.
According to a statement released by the Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC), it is understood that the Conservative MP is recovering.
The statement reads in part;
I can confirm I have tested positive for coronavirus. As soon as I was informed I took all the advised precautions and have been self-isolating at home.
Public Health England 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.
Dorries expressed concern for her 84-year-old mother who will be undergoing medical tests having exhibited potential symptoms of Covid-19, in her tweet;
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 84year old 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.
