Cummings self-isolating: Full list of senior government figures affected by coronavirus

The Prime Minister's top adviser Dominic Cummings is now self-isolating after developing symptoms of coronavirus over the weekend. Boris Johnson tested positive for coronavirus last week and is self-isolating in Downing Street. The Prime Minister was advised by the Chief Medical Officer to take the test on Thursday after he experienced mild symptoms of the disease. Shortly afterwards Matt Hancock, the Health Secretary, announced that he had contracted the virus, and was self-isolating too.  So who else at the top of government has caught coronavirus and will be out of action for the next week or so? The Cabinet has recently begun using the video-conferencing software Zoom to conduct meetings, but several ministers have continued to travel to their offices, Downing Street and Parliament as the virus has spread, making them likely targets of the disease.
