Army wives have caused an increase in coronavirus cases at Britain’s main tank base after inviting a therapist from the virus-stricken Preston to an illegal botox party.

The group, who joked that they were the ‘covid queens’ on Instagram, invited the beautician to the married quarters of Bovington Garrison in Dorset four weeks ago.

Five women were then tested positive – forcing 12 other women and 30 soldiers to self-isolate for 14 days.

One resident told The Sun: “These women crossed a line and it raised eyebrows in the village.

“The wives were advised not to do it, but they continued anyway and they really celebrated it.

The resident confirmed that there had only been five confirmed cases of covid in the area – and all were women who had participated in the botox party.

The group, who joked that they were the ‘covid queens’ on Instagram, invited the beautician to the married quarters of Bovington Garrison in Dorset four weeks ago.

The camp commanders were reportedly furious once they found out, but could do nothing to punish the women.

Around 30 soldiers have been ordered to take mandatory Covid tests and self-isolate after coming into contact with women.

And a Spar in Wool was forced to close because one of the women had visited it.

The company said, “We have temporarily closed the store in order to run a professional deep cleaning contractor as a precaution. “

The therapist – a licensed physician – is believed to have evaded local lockdown rules by walking 250 miles to the base. She and the 30 soldiers have all tested negative.

A military spokesperson said: ‘We can confirm that a small number of individuals tested positive for Covid-19 at Bovington Garrison four weeks ago. “

They said there had been no other positive cases.

Sam Crowe, head of public health at Dorset Council, said: ‘We have been made aware of a number of cases at Bovington camp which have been identified by the Army and NHS testing and tracing services. . “

The therapist, from Preston, should have self-isolated at home after the town was locked up on August 8.

All residents have been banned from mixing with other households indoors or in a garden in a last-ditch attempt to curb the surge in coronavirus rates.

They were also urged to avoid meeting friends in any environment, such as pubs and restaurants.
