A Labour MP has cancelled all his engagements after admitting that he was one of 200 delegates at a summit attended by someone who has since tested positive for the virus.
Alex Sobel, the MP for Leeds North West and Lilian Greenwood, MP for Nottingham South have put themselves into isolation as a precaution, but say they are not showing any symptoms.
In a statement on Twitter, Sobel wrote: “I attended the UK bus summit on the 6th Feb, where there was an attendee who has tested positive for coronavirus. Whilst I have been informed that I am at very low risk, I have called 111 to be formally assessed.
“As a precaution, we have cancelled all engagements until next Thursday when the 14-day potential incubation period will end. If you think you may have been in contact with someone who has coronavirus, self-isolate and call 111 for an assessment more here.”
