UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s test positive for the coronovirus that causes COVID-19 has been announced by twitter on Friday.
In the video he uploaded on social media, Johnson stated that he had “mild symptoms” of COVID-19, including fever and “persistent cough”.
Johnson is the first world leader to be infected with coronovirus. German Chancellor Angela Merkel is also in self-quarantine after her doctor tested positive for the virus.
His two tests have been done so far, in which his report is negative. Now his third Test will be held next week.
Like Merkel, Johnson says he will continue to do his work by keeping himself apart from others.
“In the last 24 hours I have developed mild symptoms and tested positive for coronavirus,” Johnson said via Twitter. “I am now self-segregating, but I will continue to lead the government’s response through video-conference as we fight this virus. Together we will defeat it.” With this he has posted by writing #StayHomeSaveLives.
Over the last 24 hours I have developed mild symptoms and tested positive for coronavirus.
I am now self-isolating, but I will continue to lead the government’s response via video-conference as we fight this virus.

U.K. The Foreign Secretary of Downing Street had said earlier in the week that if Prime Minister could not fulfill his obligations, then Dominic Rab could be given some time in his place.
U.K. The lack of succession to the Prime Minister’s Office is because the Government does not currently have a Deputy Prime Minister to be appointed at the discretion of the Prime Minister.
Therefore, like Johnson, a member of the Dominic Rab Conservative Party is being named for the post.
According to data compiled by Johns Hopkins University, there have been approximately 12,000 coronavirus-positive cases in the U.K. and about 580 people have died from COVID-19.
Johnson said that they have also joined those who are doing their work by staying at home. “There is no doubt that I can continue, thanks to the wizards of modern technology, to communicate with all my top team to lead the national fight against Coronavirus,” Johnson said.
Johnson announced his coronavirus positive program of thanksgiving to the National Health Service’s people and encouraged him by encouraging the people engaged in the Health Service by clapping.
Earlier, he greeted the health service workers of thousands of people at 10 Downing Street.
Johnson praised the health workers, police, teachers and others involved in the task, saying, “It was very moving last night to join the national clap, which at one time was hard to do its job.” Working hard when they need to ”.
Johnson said, “I want to thank everyone who is working to get our country through this epidemic.”
The news of Johnson’s illness came two days after the respiratory virus of Prince Charles came postive, which has killed more than 25,000 people worldwide. Prince Charles is currently in the process of self-isolation.
Johnson announced the introduction of Lockdown throughout the country early this week and appealed to the people to make lockdowan a success by staying home.
He said that the daily essential things will be made available to everyone, so that no one will face any problem.
If necessary things like ration and medicines came out on one day in a week, otherwise everyone stayed in their homes.
The lockdown imposed by Johnson for COVID-19 is one of the strictest measures imposed by the government that will last long.
