Coronavirus: Boris Johnson (British PM) tests positive for COVID-19

The Prime Minister said he had experienced “mild symptoms” of the COVID-19 disease and would continue to lead the UK government’s response to the crisis.

 “I am now self-isolating, but I will continue to lead the government’s response via video-conference as we fight this virus,” Johnson said in the video message. 

Johnson had previously declined testing for the coronavirus after coming into contact with a minister who had also tested positive for COVID-19.

He has agreed to make the Foreign Secretary Domonic Raab his “designated survivor” if he falls seriously ill.
