The British prime minister, Boris Johnson, has tested positive for coronavirus, the BBC’s Laura Kuenssberg reports. He has mild symptoms and will self-isolate in Downing Street, and will remain in charge of the government’s handling of the crisis.
In a video posted on Twitter minutes ago, the British Prime Minister confirmed he had developed mild symptoms over the last 24 hours and tested positive for coronavirus.
He wrote: Over the last 24 hours I have developed mild symptoms and tested positive for coronavirus. I am now self-isolating, but I will continue to lead the government’s response via video-conference as we fight this virus. Together we will beat this. #StayHomeSaveLives
