The Health Secretary told the coronavirus daily briefing that members of the public that are told they have tested positive for COVID-19 must self isolate in order to break the chain of transmission. Mr Hancock urged Britons to abide by the advice given by the NHS’ test, track and trace programme in order to help protect their communities and the nation.
Mr Hancock said: “If you test positive you must work with NHS test and trace to identify who you have been in contact with.
“If you are asked by NHS test and trace to isolate, you must do so in order to break the chain of transmission and to stop the spread of the virus.
“I would even go so far as to say that participation with NHS test and trace is your civic duty.
“Please do it to protect your loved ones, your community, the nation and the NHS.
