LONDON- 27 March 2020: British Health Secretary Matt Hancock has tested positive for coronavirus, in a second blow to the British government’s handling of the crisis after Boris Johnson was infected.

The British health secretary is overseeing the NHS’s efforts to cope with the epidemic, as it struggles with a lack of ventilators, protective equipment, and testing, the Independent reported Friday.

But he tweeted: “Following medical advice, I was advised to test for coronavirus. I’ve tested positive.

“Thankfully my symptoms are mild and I’m working from home & self-isolating. Vital we follow the advice to protect our NHS & save lives.”

The diagnosis will raise fears about how far into the heart of British government infections have spread, with concern over the chief medical officer and chief scientific adviser.
