Prime Minister Boris Johnson just announced that he was recently tested positive for the Covid-19. 

He is said to be the first world leader to announce he has the virus.

He has developed some mild symptoms for the past day and has a little high temperature and cough. 

As of the moment, he is isolating himself in Downing Street but ill still “continue to lead the government’s response via video-conference as we fight this virus.”

Shortly after the prime minister’s announcement, the Health Secretary Matt Hancock said he is also positive for the virus. He also has mild symptoms and will be working at home too.

The last time Boris Johnson was seen was on Thursday night when he was clapping outside the No 10 as a symbol of the nationwide gesture to thank the NHS staff.

The official announcement was made by Mr. Johnson, 55, by him through his Twitter account.

“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””

In his video, he was saying, “I’m working from home and self-isolating, and that’s entirely the right thing to do. But, be in no doubt that I can continue thanks to the wizardry of modern technology to communicate with all my top team to lead the national fight-back against coronavirus.” 

He added, “So thank you to everybody who’s doing what I’m doing, working from home to stop the spread of the virus from household to household. That’s the way we’re going to win.”

The No ten staff will remain two meters away from him in all given times if there is a need to be in contact with them, according to the spokesmen. He would need to isolate himself for seven days.

Mr. Johnson has been seen several times during the briefing with the government in the past week and had also attended some meetings with the medical officials for the update on the virus in the country.

The NHS Staff from No 10 tested Mr. Johnson upon the advice of their chief medical officer, Prof Chris Whitty.

Earlier during the week, the spokesman of the prime minister said the if Mr. Johnson would be sick and unable to work, the Foreign Secretary would represent him, Dominic Raab.

The fiancée of the prime minister, Carrie Symonds, who is currently pregnant, is also doing some self-isolation. There is no information yet if the couple is living together in one place.

It is strongly recommended that pregnant women should be stringent and strict in following the guidelines for social distancing. No contact socially for three months as well as advised.
