Foreign secretary Dominic Raab is self-isolating after coming into close contact with someone who tested positive for coronavirus.
He has not tested positive and it was not immediately apparent whether he was getting a test as he will have to isolate for 14 days even if it came back negative.
A source close to Dominic Raab said in a statement that the foreign secretary was informed that a person with whom he’d been in recent close contact with had tested positive for coronavirus.
And that in line with Government restrictions and NHS Track and Trace practices, the foreign secretary has taken prompt steps to self isolate for the required period and that he will not continue to work remotely during this time.
It’s understood that his period of quarantine has not disrupted any foreign travel planned for Dominic Raab, although he will be unable to attend the Remembrance Sunday events this weekend.
However, would we notice any difference from a gentleman who’s ineffectual, the same as his colleagues, whether isolating or not? And it was said that he was not going to continue to work remotely, but isn’t this a description of what cabinet does anyway?
And let’s be real, nobody’s going to notice if he’s missing and isn’t it strange that every time a member of the cabinet makes a fool of themselves, COVID gets them. Oh, he will be missed, won’t he, will he – probably not – Dominic who?
Although he’ll probably be as right as rain tomorrow – it appears to be a Tory thing.
