Matt Hancock Hair: Is He Sick? Illness And Health Update
People have shown curiosity or concern about Matt Hancock’s loss of hair. Nevertheless, he is not known to have any terminal illness or health issues that might have caused it.
He did contract the coronavirus in 2020, but it is not sure what is causing the hair loss. He is currently 44 years old.
However, Matt was diagnosed with dyslexia while at University. He shared with The Guardian in 2018 that his condition became known two decades earlier while studying at Oxford.
His spokesperson also said that Matt hopes to raise awareness about dyslexia and other issues of public relevance close to his heart by appearing on I’m A Celebrity. Matt has introduced a bill proposing universal screening for dyslexia in primary schools.
Famous dyslexia charities, including Made by Dyslexia and Dyslexia Foundation, applauded the MP’s decision to raise awareness and voice about his condition.
The NHS describes dyslexia as a learning disability that mainly causes reading, writing, and spelling issues. It can also create memory problems.
At the same time, it can have positive effects, such as problem-solving, big-picture, and creative thinking.
