Boris Johnson, the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom (UK), has tested positive for coronavirus.

According to an official statement, he has mild symptoms and will continue to lead the government while he’s self-isolated.

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

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.

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.
