Bolton South East MP Yasmin Qureshi has been admitted to hospital

Bolton South East MP Yasmin Qureshi has been admitted to hospital two weeks after contracting COVID-19.

The 57-year-old is now undergoing treatment for pneumonia.

Qureshi tested positive for coronavirus a fortnight ago and continued to work remotely whilst self-isolating, but after feeling increasingly unwell she was admitted to Royal Bolton Hospital over the weekend.

The MP posted an update on social media informing the public of her condition, praising the NHS staff taking care of her and saying she is being “very well looked after.”

Qureshi clarified that she did “not travel to Westminister or anywhere else” during her isolation period.

“I continued to work as best I could remotely, attending virtual meetings and doing casework, but after 10 days, I began to feel much worse and on Saturday I was admitted to the Royal Bolton Hospital with pneumonia,” the MP said.

Qureshi added that she had “nothing but praise and admiration for the wonderful staff” at the health facility.

Her staff are continuing to “work as normal.”
