Milton Keynes MP Ben Everitt has fully 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 had a mild case of the virus. 

    Speaking to MKFM earlier this morning, he said that the cough, which one of the symptoms, hasn't gone away yet. "The cough will last longer than the virus," Ben 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."

    The MP for Milton Keynes North has been self-isolating for a week and has posted 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 are showing symptoms of COVID-19 must self-isolate for 7 days.

    If a member of your household is showing symptoms of COVID-19, even if you do not, you must isolate for 14 days. This is because you can still be contagious for up to 14 days before you start to show symptoms. Find out more about advice for staying at home by clicking here
