Only a couple of days after the Prime Minister of United Kingdom, Boris Johnson, announced a lockdown for the country to curb the spread of Covid-19, it was just announced that Mr Johnson was tested positive for the coronavirus.
He posted an update on his Twitter account (@BorisJohnson), letting the people know that he was confirmed with Covid-19 as of 27 March. He described that he developed “mild symptoms” such as fever and a persistent cough and he took a test after being advised by the Chief Medical Officer. Since the results came out positive, he began working from home while he practises self-isolation, claiming that it’s the right thing to do.
In his tweet, Mr Johnson wrote: “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. Together we will beat this.”

Mr Johnson recorded a video of himself explaining the situation he was experiencing at that moment, and he had expressed gratitude towards the staff at the National Health Service in the process of combatting Covid-19. Not forgetting to thank other national services like the police, social care workers, teachers, and the staff who work for the Department for Work and Pensions in the United Kingdom.
Although he was confirmed with the coronavirus, he was still working online via video conferences. He assured that they would be able to get through this pandemic by practising and applying the precautionary measures that had been announced to the people in the United Kingdom.
“We will get through it. And the way we’re going to get through it is of course, by applying the measures that you have heard so much about. The more effectively we all comply with those measures, the faster our country will come through this epidemic, and the faster we will bounce back.”
Not forgetting the people who are staying at home as a precautionary measure, Mr Johnson thanked everyone for cooperating by working from home as well as stopping the virus from spreading from household to household. He ended his video by urging people to stay at home to protect the National Health Service and save lives.
