Calls for Boris Johnson to meet with health minister again

Following news British Health Minister Nadine Dorries has been diagnosed with Covid-19, there have been widespread calls for Johnson to meet again with his highly infectious cabinet colleague.

Johnson’s advisors told The Chaser overnight that Johnson would not be tested for the coronavirus, even though he met with the Health Minister just a day before she fell ill. “We’re pretty sure his exposure wasn’t enough to warrant any medical concerns,” said one senior government member. “So we’re calling on him to go and visit her in quarantine. Maybe shake her hand or something.”
