The UK’s Prime Minster, Boris Johnson, announced he has tested positive for Coronavirus and is now under self-quarantine.
In the past week, Johnson drastically stepped up efforts to restrict movement in the UK following the spread of the pandemic.
Over the last 24 hours I have developed mild symptoms and tested positive for coronavirus.— Boris Johnson #StayHomeSaveLives (@BorisJohnson) March 27, 2020
I am now self-isolating, but I will continue to lead the government’s response via video-conference as we fight this virus.
Together we will beat this. #StayHomeSaveLives pic.twitter.com/9Te6aFP0Ri
