UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson Tests Positive For Coronavirus

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has tested positive for coronavirus, becoming the first head of state to confirm they have been infected by the virus.

“After experiencing mild symptoms yesterday the prime minister was tested for coronavirus on the personal advice of England’s Chief Medical Officer Professor Chris Whitty,” a Downing Street statement said Friday morning.

Johnson is now self-isolating in Downing Street and is “continuing to lead the government’s response to coronavirus.”

In a video posted on Twitter, Johnson said that in recent days he’d “developed mild symptoms of the coronavirus that’s to say, a temperature and a persistent cough” before being tested.

He added that self-isolation and social distancing were the best way for the country to stop the spread of the virus.

“The more effectively we all comply with those measures, the faster our country will come through this epidemic and the faster we will bounce back,” Johnson said.
