Boris informed about his condition in a tweet earlier today, adding that he has gone into self-isolation. The premier will continue to lead the government’s efforts to control the spread of the deadly virus virtually.
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.

Johnson is recent among the British elite to fall prey to the deadly virus after Prince Charles, heir to the throne tested positive for Covid-19 a couple of days ago.
So far, the country has reported more than 11,600 cases of the novel virus, out of which 578 people have died.
This is a developing story and will be updated as we get more info.
