Covid 19 coronavirus: Boris Johnson self-isolating after contact with infected person
Boris Johnson is self-isolating after being notified by NHS Test and Trace that he came into contact with a person who has tested positive for Covid-19.
A No10 spokesperson said: “The Prime Minister will follow the rules and is self-isolating.
“He will carry on working from Downing Street, including on leading the Government’s response to the coronavirus pandemic.
“The PM is well and does not have any symptoms of COVID-19.”
It is understood the Prime Minister met with a group of MPs for 35 minutes on Thursday morning which included Ashfield MP Lee Anderson who has since tested positive for coronavirus.
Johnson, who has already had Covid-19, was subsequently instructed to self-isolate by NHS Test and Trace. He is expected to continue speaking to the country during his self-isolation period.
Johnson credited his excellent hospital care – including a Kiwi nurse from Invercargill – for his recovery from the virus.
