Boris Johnson, the British Premier, has screened for coronavirus positively.
He has moderate symptoms and will start the policy as long it’s self-isolated, according to an official statement.
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.
