UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson has announced that he has tested positive for coronavirus, after presenting “mild symptoms” in the past 24 hours.
“Now I am isolated, but I will continue to lead the government’s response through videoconferences as we fight the virus. Together we will overcome this,” he proclaimed on his Twitter account.
Johnson this week had decreed confinement of the population to prevent contagion. British authorities have confirmed more than 11,000 cases and at least 578 deaths from coronavirus.
