Second UK MP Infected with Covid-19 as Kate Osborne Goes Into Isolation

Osborne added that people should remain at home if they feel any mild symptoms, such as a high temperature or a mild cough – advise also given by the government last week. She says that she was diagnosed following self-isolation and a test returning positive.

Despite the news, her office will remain open and Osborne has urged her constituents to contact her staff while she remains isolated.

It comes just a week after Health Minister Nadine Dorries revealed she had caught it – the first MP in Westminster to test positive. She later revealed her mother, 84, also contracted the infection.

She also revealed that her mother, who is 84-years-old, has also contracted the potentially deadly virus.
