  • UK Health Minister Self Isolating After Covid App Alert

"Last night, I was pinged by the NHS coronavirus app so that means I'll be self-isolating at home and not leaving the house at all until Sunday", Hancock said. "So you must follow these rules, like I'm going to", he said.

A 10-day self-isolation, which means staying at home without any exception, is a legal requirement in the United Kingdom for anybody who has COVID-19 symptoms, has tested positive for the virus, lives with someone who has symptoms, has arrived from overseas or has been contacted by the NHS Test and Trace app.

Mr Hancock must quarantine despite having tested positive for Covid-19 in March, announcing his diagnosis shortly after Prime Minister Boris Johnson revealed his own.

U.K. Health Secretary Matt Hancock is in self-isolation after being notified by the National Health Service's contact tracing app.

The NHS app tells a person if they have been in close contact with someone who has later tested positive for coronavirus and tells them to isolate for 10 full days from their last contact. Similar restriction measures are also in place in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.

In a video posted to his Twitter account on Tuesday morning, Mr Hancock - who on Monday afternoon fronted a Downing Street COVID-19 briefing - said he would now be remaining at home at all times until Sunday.

Millions of over-70s and clinically extremely vulnerable Britons will begin receiving invitations to book their jab appointments today.

As the rollout of coronavirus vaccines continues across the United Kingdom, the health secretary said: "Don't blow it now, we're on the route out".
