Milton Keynes MP Ben Everitt says he has recovered from coronavirus

    Ben Everitt, MP for Milton Keynes North, has fully recovered from COVID-19 and is on his last day of self-isolation.

    Although he has not been tested, Ben Everitt MP believes that he has had the virus.

    Speaking to MKFM, Ben Everitt says he is now feeling better, but the cough, which is one of the symptoms, hasn't gone away yet. "The cough will last longer than the virus,"  he added. "But all of the symptoms have gone other than just feeling a bit knackered which is your usual post-viral fatigue. No temperature, definitely no fever, and feeling a lot better than I have been."

    Ben has been in self-isolation for one week and has been posting daily updates on his Twitter page. Speaking about how he found self-isolation, Ben said he was "very lucky" because he and his colleagues have worked well remotely. "I haven't really felt isolated despite the fact I haven't seen another human being for 7 days," he added.

    Those who show symptoms of coronavirus must stay at home and self-isolate for 7 days. 

    If a member of your household begins to show symptoms, you must stay home for 14 days. This is because the virus can be contagious for 14 days before you start to show symptoms. Click here for more information on staying at home.
