PM Boris Johnson tests positive for COVID-19

Prime Minister Boris Johnson tests positive for the coronavirus, Downing Street has said.

Mr Johnson has mild symptoms and will self-isolate in Downing Street.

In a statement No. 10 said:

“He was tested for coronavirus on the personal advice of England’s chief medical officer, Professor Chris Whitty,”

He will still be in charge of the government’s handling of the crisis, the statement added.

He was absent from yesterday’s daily coronavirus briefing that was lead by Chancellor Rishi Sunak.

The Prime Minister has shared a message to the nation on Twitter:

Mr Johnson was last seen on Thursday night, as he clapped outside No 10 as part of a nationwide gesture to thank NHS staff.

There are more than 11,600 confirmed cases of coronavirus in the UK, and 578 people have died.
