British Prime Minister, Mr Boris Johnson, has been taken to hospital for tests.
His office disclosed on Sunday, April 5, 2020, noting that it is 10 days after he tested positive for Coronavirus.
Aged 55, Mr Johnson had announced on March 27, 2020, that he had mild symptoms of COVID-19 and had been in self-isolation at his Downing Street residence for seven days.
He had been scheduled to re-emerge on Friday after a week of recovery and working remotely but said he would remain at home because he still had a high temperature, one of the symptoms.
Downing Street said in a statement on Sunday: “On the advice of his doctor, the Prime Minister has tonight been admitted to hospital for tests. This is a precautionary step, as the Prime Minister continues to have persistent symptoms of coronavirus 10 days after testing positive for the virus.”
It is understood Mr Johnson’s admission to the hospital was not an emergency and was considered sensible because of his ongoing symptoms.
