Senior government minister Michael Gove has isolated himself from the coronavirus

High Minister, Michael Gove, cut himself off after a family member he had been in contact with began to experience symptoms of coronavirus.

The chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster, part of the government’s leadership team that provides advice on Covid-19, remains “well”, but must remain in isolation, according to public health instructions.

With the Prime Minister Boris Johnson in intensive care after his coronavirus symptoms worsened, Gove was expected to continue to play a leading role in the government’s response to the outbreak.

He will continue to work from quarantine and in morning interviews before his isolation was revealed, he said “government work continues”.

Gove claimed that Johnson is receiving “the best care” and insisted that the government machine continue to operate.

NEW: Michael Gove has just been confirmed to be self-insulating.

A member of his family is experiencing symptoms, but remains well in himself.

Gove continues to work, according to his round of interviews this morning. But yet another challenge for this government to circumvent.

“We are all working together to implement the plan defined by the Prime Minister to try to ensure that we can deploy all the resources of the government, indeed all the resources of our country, in the fight against this invisible enemy,” he said at BBC Breakfast.

“The work of the government continues.

“We have excellent civil service and they have assured us that the machines are there for the decisions that must be made by ministers, by medical and scientific experts, and for those decisions to be followed in a way that allows us to help those who are in the first line line. “

With Johnson in intensive care, foreign secretary Dominic Raab, who is “replacing”, is conducting daily government meetings on the coronavirus “war cabinet”.

Gove, who has known Johnson since they met as students, said the ICU prime minister is “terrible”.

He said to Good Morning Britain: “We are just hoping and praying that he will. Yesterday it was a shock to hear the news of his intensive care.”

He added: “We desperately hope that Boris will be able to recover as quickly as possible.”
