Dorries said in a statement that as soon as she was informed of the diagnosis, she took "all the advised precautions", and Public Health England has started tracing her contacts.

Ms Dorries told the BBC that a member of her parliamentary staff also has the virus, adding: "Contact tracers have full list of everyone I have been in contact with".

She said: "Thanks for so many good wishes".

But she added she was anxious about her 84-year-old mother who was staying with her and began to cough on Tuesday.

LabourList understands that Johnson is not being tested as he has no symptoms, and that he was not in close contact with Dorries despite her attending the reception at No. 10.

Keep safe and keep washing those hands, everyone.

A total of six MPs are now believed to be in self-isolation, including Mr Argar and Ms Dorries. The pair attended an event together this week.

She received her positive test result this evening.
